    Just a few more weeks until the big event starts on March 5. Let us hope it fares better than last year.

    Yes, thank you, Jeff.

    I did not get there early enough to ID or chat with contestants. I got there at 7am but it was hard to find a parking space.

    I just showed up and started clicking photos.

    Everglades Challenge

    I'd like to do the Challenge some day in the right boat. I saw one guy sailing a sunfish-that's definitely not the right boat for me......

    Doug, maybe we will build the right boat and co-crew it.
