Tanzer 16 -- 300 miles of open water -- Everglades Challenge

Tanzer 16 -- 300 miles of open water -- Everglades Challenge -- March 3, 2016  21:27 PST--  One day and six hours from now Brian Mrachek will launch his Tanzer 16 from the beach in Tampa Bay.  He has eight days to sail it to Key Largo, a distance of approximately 300 miles.  No power is allowed.  No support or follow boats are allowed.  He can use sail and oars.  Brian has done this before, but this year we can track him.  Here is the course:

Brian has done this race before.  That is a lot of mile in a 16-foot open boat.  Oh to be 40 (or even 50) again.  You can track Brian's progress at:

  Below are the two links so you can track me.  The first is my direct spot account
The other is hosted by the event.  To use that one put the event as EC2016, challenger BubbaKoosh and Display as “Show Tracks, OK, Help and Current Waypoint Only”.  Then hit the Regenerate View button.   If you see a green box with a chevron it means we are camping there for the night.

  1. Hi Brian.

    I saw your boat in the line up on one of the many youtube vids.

    Doing the EC is something that is beginning to draw me more and more. :>)
