Four HISC boats participated in the first annual Miami to Havana race. This 210 mile ocean race was sponsored by SORC and the Storm Trysail Club who did a great job of working out the challenging logistics for this new event. 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!
