Excitableboy and Runswithbeers has been added to the live-feed blog-roll on the left sidebar. I encourage you to keep tabs on Luke and Gary for the next few months. Sure to be entertaining and enlightening.
My interest in this duo is their boat. They are each well established racers with several decades of experience and are likely to set up the Sea Pearl 21 for optimum efficiency. This could be a bonus for non-racers as well.
It's been suggested I do the Everglades Challenge myself and must admit it is intriguing until someone points out that two thirds of the contestants never finish.
In Luke's words:
"Those of you who are interested in attempting an EC or some other type of endurance/expedition event in the future may actually learn something or make the decision to stick to tennis or golf. It should be an interesting ride."
If I was going to be in the Everglades Challenge next spring, I'd get a fix on these guys and stay as close to them as I could.
Many thanks to the Small Craft Advisor for suggesting this gem.
