The Great Ocean Race

Just came across this article regarding Chesapeake Bay sailors.

Coquina

Man those guys had some brass ones eh? Things were different then I guess. $15 registration fee? 38 boats for race that would be nearly 4 days long in the best case? Wow!

You'd think with the advent of GPS these types of races would seem less daunting but participation seems to be dwindling for long distance races on the bay that are no where near as daunting as a non-stop DelMarVa circumnavigation.
