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.
