6556No Weta for Everglades Challenge 2014
- Feb 28, 2014For those that don't know, The Everglades Challenge is a 300 mile expedition boat race from Tampa Bay to Key Largo in Florida. Entrants are unsupported during the race and have to take everything with them - although they have a radio beacon for emergencies.
The race starts today but, according to the roster, no Wetas are entered - although they have entered in previous years but never finished. Previous Weta entrants have suffered rudder damage from hitting the bottom when surfing over a shoal at a channel entrance, a fire(!) when water got into the electricity supply for a chart plotter and top mast breaking in 40 knot squall.
So my question is - how would you modify a Weta so that it could finish the race?
