    On Saturday March 3rd at 7:00 AM I will be competing on team DonKeyHoTey & MicroTom in the WaterTribe Everglades Challenge. This apx a 300 mile adventure race from Fort Desoto (Tampa) to Key Largo. Paddle and sail only. We are in a 19' sailing skiff that if you took off the sailing rig you would swear it was a flats boat. Sailboats are under Class 4. If you are interested in following me in the race our updates will be under DonKeyHoTey (capt on the boat)

    You can track the entire race here. Sometimes the site gets overwhelmed because people from around the world watch it:

    For some reason Chief, the guy who runs this thing, has a backup at:

    If his site is down you can follow us directly on my SPOT page:

    Our race updates from our shore contact will be here.

    Sometime after the race is finished and I can decompress I will update my blog:

    Its going to be a windy time out there but if any of you get a chance to say high along the course I would be stoked!
