Florida 300 Updated Notice of Race has been published. Please read carefully and note the safety equipment, including Personal Locator Beacons (PLB's), required for each crew.

Added by DamonLinkous on Mar 01, 2016 - 06:22 PM

NOTICE: 2016 Florida 300 Early Registration extended to March 20th.

There are a lot of exciting new features and sponsors for the race being finalized now, so the Florida 300 organizers have decided to push back the deadline.

This is to allow for some announcements that should be coming soon that could convince those on the fence to jump into the race.

Watch this space for further news. 

Registration Open Now on www.Florida300.com 


Florida 300 Early Registration Ends March 1st.

Added by DamonLinkous on Feb 27, 2016 - 03:50 PM

Florida 300 Distance Race – Starts May 17 with 5 days of racing ending on Saturday, May 22, 2016. Party to Follow!

Early Registration Ends March 1, 2016 

This year's Florida 300 is going to be the best ever with an extra day of racing and the finish line at Daytona Beach. Lots of details to come, but we already have more sponsorship in hand than ever before and a big beach party at the Ocean Deck near the finish line on Sunday following the race.

Many of you have read about events like the Worrell 1000, Tybee 500, Great Texas, or the Hogs Breath. These challenges give a beachcat sailor a chance to do something few accomplish by pushing themselves and their boat to sail hundreds of miles with a bunch of like minded (crazy) sailors.

 If you have the boat, and basic skills like surf launching and landing, why not give yourself this opportunity? If you are ever going to do a major distance race the Florida 300 stands out as a “doable” event. Five days of racing with reasonable leg lengths from 60 to 80 miles and each finish line is right in front of your hotel! Couldn’t be better, so come along and join us for the 2016 Florida 300 and save $55 by getting your registration in by March 1st.

To get your early registration in or ask any questions please contact any of the Sail Series Promotions board member on the Contact the Florida300.com organizers.

2015 Key Largo Steeplechase

Added by grandude on Nov 20, 2015 - 12:32 PM

2015 Key Largo Steeplechase… check it out.

If you have ever had an interest or curiosity in the Key Largo Steeplechase, you should look at the race again, this year. The 2015 Steeplechase is scheduled for December 12th and 13th and will be the new format we ran last year. This new course is the result of the sailors’ initiative and everyone agreed the changes worked well.

Instead of rigging and launching from Gilbert’s, the boats are rigged at the Islander Resort in Islamorada. The start is from the beach at the Islander. As the host of Tradewinds, The Florida 300 and many other great regattas, the Islander is perfect for sailing beachcats. Many thanks to Dennis Greene and Water Sports, our contact onsite.

The Islander has been upgraded and is now a Guy Harvey Outpost. The rooms, bar, restaurant and pool area make it great for evening socials and really nice for ground crews. One year at Tradewinds we even had a camp fire.

Saturday morning is the start, and the longer of the 2 days. We sail north east to Angelfish Creek. Navigation is pretty simple but a GPS is standard equipment. Through Angelfish Creek and down through Card Sound, under the bridge and across Barnes Sound. Card Sound bridge offers great photo opportunity and many crews meet there to check on their teams. Jewfish Creek slows things down where some teams paddle and some show skills that only the Steeplechase can teach. Past Gilbert’s and down Blackwater Sound, through Dusenbury Creek and into Tarpon Basin. Grouper Creek opens up into Buttonwood Sound and the final drag race into the Upper Keys Sailing Club. 


Florida 300 Date Set for May 17-21, 2016

2016 Florida 300

Sail Series Promotions is fully committed to the Florida 300 for 2016. We are excited to announce the date for the 3rd running of the Florida 300. The event date is set for May 17-21, 2016 with a course predicted to be similar to the first year.


We wanted to get the date out in advance of upcoming national races so sailors can start planning for next year. We sent out a survey to previous competitors last month and had good response with all responders either committing to next year or definite maybe's for the 2016 event.


Various course ideas have been considered including the feedback received in our survey. Although we have not been able to finalize the course, we did not want to delay posting our race dates.


We are actively looking for sponsorship for next year and need your help. The more sponsorship involvement we secure, the better the event we can put on. Please feel free to email info@sailseries.com or contact Craig Van Eaton at 561.881.1226.

Race Day 2, May 20 – Key Biscayne to Singer Island;

Race Day 4, May 22 – Vero Beach FL to Cocoa Beach, FL .

These are currently expected stopping locations which may change slightly based upon detailed planning currently in work. (Negotiations on going with Hotels and Cities)



If this goes well, we are certainly further considering distances 500-1000 starting next year, BUT WE MUST GET A FIRST RACE OFF THE GROUND AND SUCCESSFUL AND THIS MEANS YOU SAILING WITH US!!!!!



The last segment (Vero Beach to Cocoa Beach) will have a separate start for boats with Hobie 16 or faster portsmouth rating. Details to be published soon.
