Ft. Lauderdale to Key West Race 2005

January and time to go to Key Weird again! This year only the feeder race but I did it on an Oyster 48 called Bandana and we had a great time! The winds were up in the 20 - 25kt range most of the day and night and we were lucky enough to not have any of it on the nose this time. The breeze followed us around as we worked our way down the course and we finished in 18.5 hours for a 2nd in class, and 2nd in fleet! We were beaten by a Hobie 33.... I really hate when that happens, but I know I was a lot more comfortable than they were all night! Below are just a handful of pix from the weekend.
