Congratulations on a great effort and on having excellent judgement! I cannot wait to hear the stories from this years race. It looks like one of the toughest in years. You know it is a challenge when the best and most expert paddlers and sailors from around the country have a finish rate of less than 50%.
I talked to Pelican, the Everglades Challenge Manager, tonight and so far they have all hands safe and a lot of busted boats.
