The third round of the Endurance Series is October 16th and 17th. Hiram's Haul is a 30 mile catamaran sprint down the Intercoastal waterway to the quaint, cialis old Florida town of Sebastian and Capt. Hiram's for the first party. Spend the night and enjoy Capt. Hirams or any of the other cozy watering holes. Return the next day with another 30 mile sprint to Performance Sail and Sport for the 2nd leg and overall trophy presentation and party.

Although the lead has stretched out a little the competition will be fierce. John Casey will rejoin the series while taking a break from racing in Europe. John has won the series twice and will be looking to take top honors from the Carbon Cruising team.  

FIT sailing club is planning to enter a Hobie 18 and Hobie 16 in the Hiram’s Haul pending approval of their faculty advisor. A number of the FIT sailors have been training for month on their 420’s and Fj’s, typical collegiate dinghy, and have been volunteering themselves to crew of any catamaran driver willing to work with them. A couple of them have previous catamaran experience in other countries such as Belgium, Spain, Puerto Rico, and Brazil.
