October 31, cialis 2015- November 1, 2015

The 14th running of Hiram's Haul is set for October 31 - November 1. The catamaran race is a total 60 mile race running from Melborne, Florida to Sebastian, Florida on Saturday and back to Melbourne on Sunday.

Hans Geissler (75) a winning catamaran designer, builder and racer for over 35 years will compete with his partner Ronald Hiell to help draw attention to the need to engage and help the Race 2 End Hunger as he already did, for example, at the Florida 300 in May and has done most of the latest 20 years.

Hans Geissler left his boat building business in 1994 to create Morning Star Fishermen; a Dade City based charity that promotes fish farming and Aquaponics as a solution to help end world hunger. His quest to help end global hunger through research, development and training individuals from around the world however has not removed his passion for catamaran racing. Money raised through sponsors and donations to Morning Star Fishermen will go toward making a local and global impact on ending hunger. Mr. Geissler also hopes that the trip will help draw attention to the ongoing problem of global malnutrition and hunger. Please see the links below to see how you too can be more involved and join the Race 2 End Hunger now.



There is less than one week till Hiram's Haul and more fun activities are available for the participants. With 15 boats now pre-registered, stuff the event is turning into an event not to be missed. There will be live tracking and both starts and finishes will be streamed live via YouTube Live.

Mark Herendeen is organizing a practice run from a private community park in Melbourne Beach (ironically only 1000 feet from his house), look for a warmup fun run north to MIA-POW Park on Friday. The run is a little over 20 miles. Any teams wishing to join in must have boats rigged by 1:00 and ready to go. Kattack tracking will be available for this pre-race event so you can test the system and your smart phone. Please have your smart phone charged with the Kattack app downloaded.

On Friday evening Mark and Lisa Herendeen will also be hosting a social event at their house starting  at 6:30 pm. The event is sponsored by Real Estate INK Sailors are welcome to a spaghetti/meatball dinner social. There is one catch…you HAVE to let them know you are coming and how many guests you are bringing. The event is BYOB. This social is intended to allow time to get know everyone, plan for next year's Hiram's Haul and discuss Space Coast plans for another distance race from Downtown Melbourne’s Riverview Park and other regattas out of the park.
