Hi All,

Can anyone tell me anything about the Worrell 1000?? 

I have just seen the website but i am wondering if it is still going?  Also, anyone done it, or know someone who has???

I think i would love to give it a go...

As far as i know the Worrell 1000 is dead but there is the Tybee 500 and Atlantic 1000 (which is the same thing)

Will Sunnucks and Mark Self completed the Worrell in 2001 becoming the first Brits to do so here is there write up http://www.hurricane59.com/news/items.asp?id=128 

last year Will and Mark won the Archipeligo Raid another 500 mile race in a f18 http://www.tornadouk.com/news/newsitem.asp?id=1&ar=123

For some cool british long distance challanges look at http://www.catamaran.co.uk/madcat.asp

 

lifes to short to sail slow boats!

Thanks champ!!

Never raced a cat before, but some of these extreme races look like my kind of deal... what sort of money would i be looking at for a good F-18??

Hi chucktheskiffie,

There's plenty of information on cats and some good forums on:http://www.catsailor.com/
