The last leg  will start at Vero Beach and include additional competitors on the shorter 50 mile leg dubbed the "Dogfight" race .

The Florida 300 will include last years overall winner, Key Sailing with Kirk Newkirk and Thomas Whitehurst sailing a Nacra 20 Carbon, hoping to fend off a strong field of returnees and newcomers.

Each class will compete among themselves for line honors and for overall winners based on the Portsmouth handicap system and overall quickest time.
