February â€“ March 2016
This is a Suncoast Boat of the Year Regatta.
“Come Hell or high water” was the phrase used by our first regatta chair, Brian Malone.Â This distance race is held in Hillsborough Bay, but don’t assume it isÂ justÂ an afternoon cruise.Â Test your navigation skills and plan to race even if the weather pipes up.Â This time of year is prone to fronts.Â In the internet age, most race decisions are made at the bar watching radar.Â You can plan to race this one and hone your heavy weather skills, so don’t shy away if there is a blow.
