We are going to have tracker, live footage including on water video but also drone. A number of companies have agreed to provide on water in race coaching as well as daily am debriefs using both drone and tracker footage. We are in talks with Past M24 World Champion Chris Rast to lead the coaching of the event.
This is a regatta but really a place where we can get all boats going well. The real goal is to attempt to get more of the Corinthian / local type boats to make it down to get better and feel more comfortable in the boat. his is a pilot program to where if we can execute properly it can be both expanded but also replicated in other areas, events and countries. We have the best boat around and its time to help make it grow from a participation standpoint.
We are arranging affordable storage in Miami as well as affordable transport back in forth, to St Pete, Charleston as well as Victoria courtesy of Billy Goldsberry One Design, Mike Floyd from Atlantic and others.
Affordable housing is all over Coconut Grove this time of year; we have a two bedroom room at the Residence Inn for $275 a night including parking and breakfast which is a short walk to Shake A Leg.
We (the class and people spearheading this) hope you can attend this groundbreaking event. If you have any questions shoot them our way!
