    I've been watching this a few years (since I got HD Theater). Like F-1, it's rich Euro-Fags spending un-goddly amounts of $$$$ to shave a tenth.

    Not so ironic...the F1 is in Montreal on the 13th.

    I wanna go to both!!!

    found the following:

    Will private boats be allowed near the event site?
    Local marinas will receive information from the United States Coast Guard (USCG) on Race Box
    locations, flight times and waterway restrictions, and will pass that information along to their
    customers.
    The Red Bull Air Race and local authorities discourage viewing from boats on the water during
    the race. USCG will set up a safety distance regarding all vessels and based on this all
    spectators are advised that the best way to view the race is from the official ticketed areas.


    54.Will there be Hudson River waterway restrictions for leisure crafts?
    The actual Race area will be part of a Safety and Security Zone in which no vessels are allowed
    to move or maneuver. Navigation for all vessels going north or south on the Hudson River will
    continue throughout the race. The US Coast Guard is considering spectator boxes for
    pleasure craft on the River. In this case, spectator vessels will be grouped together in specific
    areas, and around them boats will continue to navigate regularly. ***Full access to the Morris
    Canal, where Liberty Landing Marina and Liberty Harbor Marina are located, is planned to be
    continuous and uninterrupted throughout the event***
    55.Can boats watch the Race from the river?
    The US Coast Guard will be regulating spectator boats and information regarding spectator
    boats will be provided to local marinas. There will be no radio feed of the race LIVE show for
    boaters.
    The US Coast Guard will put out an advisory notice on homeport 2-3 weeks prior to the race
    with additional information about the regulated navigation area and spectator boxes. Check
    http://homeport.uscg.mil/newyork.

    Slug,
    Thanx for the great post and welcome to GHulk

    I've been riding the Hudson for ~10 years and I cant tell you what it's like other than It's BIG water around the city and can take on many faces(all in the same day).

    some resources are here http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=59861

    thanks for the welcome...I am new to jet skiing but have done a lot of reading here and on pwctoday, just picked up a couple hondas.

    I am totally down for watching these races from our ski's if its logistically possible (if there is a place we can watch from and if there is a launch I can get to etc). Sounds like a great idea.
