Valentines Day/ Couples Race on February 9, 2019 will complete the 2018 HISC racing season.  We are hoping for a lot of boats to compete in this race which will culminate with an After Race Party in Lake Boca hosted by cruising boats;  Duet, Paradocs, and Southwind.  The Chili cook-off competition was “fierce “  last year and we expect nothing less this year!  If the weather Gods bless us, we’ll start the race at 11:00am at our normal start.

I raced aboard SusimiX with Michael Carrington, Eduardo Rabadan, Alan Katz, Greg Galanis and Brian Broad. Our adventure started on Wednesday morning as we prepared for our departure from Coconut Grove. With several news crews on the docks taking video, photos and interviewing crew members, it was one of the most exciting departures that I can remember!
