    Anyone interested in a "SoCal Offshore Triangle" race?

    What would you guys say to a "SoCal Offshore triangle" race?

    The Course:

    We're going to hit all 3 riding/training HOT SPOTS in this race!

    The course is approx 100-106 miles starting from Long Beach, racing to Avalon for a mandatory "up to" 20 - 30 minute fuel stop/rest & then race to Dana Point for another fuel stop, Then race back to Long Beach for the finish.

    The course can be reversed starting from DP to AV to LB and back to DP OR DP to LB to AV and back...etc..
    Since Avalon only has 87 octane it would be best to have AV as the 1st destination no matter how the course is ran, this way if you run race fuel you will only need about 5 gallons of 87 mixed in your remaining 1/2 tank to get to the next destination or bring some octane boost. Those of us with ext. fuel cells it shouldn't be a problem.

    Also, LB might be the better place to start because of the lodging & attractions for the out of town guests.

    Each leg will be recorded by time. Add all 3 times to get a combined total & best time wins. You might have a bad 1st leg but excellent 2nd & 3rd leg so your times will judge how well you ran. Just because the 1st ski crosses the finish line doesn't mean he's the winner.

    Race date?
    To be determined.. The date can't interfere with other events & should be 3- 4 weeks between other races.
    Any Ideas on a good set date?

    We Need Input Here:

    Option 1:Your time will stop at each destination then restart as soon as you're fueled & let the turn boat know you're ready for take off.

    Option 2: Wait for everyone to fuel & do a lined up rolling start to the next destination.

    You must be sure to let the score keeper know you're ready to depart before you leave to the next destination.

    We're thinking about transponders like used in the MH300 & they proved to be flawless!

    The logistics are being worked out now to see where the entry fee's will land & if it's doo-able. If all goes well there will be a safety helicopter with video & photo shooting as well as a rescue swimmer in case he's needed. Several safety ski's floating around the course & an offshore boat. We're looking at vessel assist to help out since we have a connection with them.

    Any advice/tips on where to get Loaner/rent (5 or 6) 4 stroke ski's for the safety crew to use?

    We will need 35+ racers to make this happen to keep the entry fee's around $200.00.. Could be a little more, could be less than that but it will be worth it!

    If all goes well to plan this will be a big race!

    Let me know via email [email protected], PM or here if you're interested in making this happen. If you know of anyone that's a FOR SURE entry let me know that too.

    All ideas & advice are welcomed!

    Thank you!

    Y'all kill me over there. I can't get enough people to go out to the gulf just to ride and there are more races and all your training days out there. It is hard on me to not be closer to become active with all of you out there. If I only knew about all of you when I was living out there I probably would have stayed.
