The second race in the Endurance Series is Saturday August 20th. Gilligan's Run is about 26 miles which is the shortest race of the series. The race starts at Acapulco Hotel and Resort and runs North to a mark in front of the "Ocean Deck" then South to Ponce De Leon Inlet rounding a inlet buoy before turning back north to finish back at the hotel.
Gilligan's Run is the only one day race in the series which starts and finishes at the same place making the logistic very simple. The coast off of Daytona Beach stays shallow for a long way out making getting through the surf to the starting line almost as challenging as the race. Watching the boats launch off the waves through the surf before the race is always a fan favorite.
The race is hosted by Fleet 80 and there is always a good turnout of local sailors with superb knowledge of the area that always make the competition interesting. After the race, all the participants move from the beach to the Caron's house for the awards and fish fry.
