2010 Miami Nassau Race Week

The 2010 Nassau Cup Ocean Race began at 11:05am on November 11, 2010. By around 11:15am Balamena II had tendered her resignation from the race.

After replacing the rigging, hatches, and various other repairs to the boat, we prepared to start the race. Sails up, timing a go, we started the race and powered up. About 5 minutes into the race we heard cracking and felt movement in the deck. The anchor for the stanchions that is fiberglassed in the hull was beginning to give way and the deck chain plate was taking the force and lifting the deck. Sails down, motor back to Miami and the event is over…

…not without some interesting river and bridge navigations however!

Key West Race Week 2011 anyone?
