Point Series - Tampa Bay 2006

The weather was perfect and the challengers were in good spirits for launch.  Everyone got off without a hitch with two going for the 15 mile loop and eveyone else doing the 25 miler.  Frogy130 and CatLady chose the Rattlesnake Key route and the rest did the open route.  All the 25 milers got hit with a fairly strong tide on the final leg back to the launch beach.

* RowABrick earned the True Grit award for this race.  While sailing along with several miles to go his forestay broke and the mast came down on his head.  Instead of giving up and taking any of the several offers to tow him back he pressed on and finished the last mile or so by trudging along the Mullet Key beach towing his boat to the finish line.  Rumor has it he did not want to give up the 25 points :)
