Sailors, get your rest... you're gonna need it!

posted Jun 14, 2011, 9:08 PM by Ryan Verret
Less than 12 hours before the start of the 2011 GT300, the forecasts can agree on one thing... it is going to be exhausting for the sailors! That, and there will be 17 knots at 10 AM, building to well over 20 in the afternoon. You can find Sailflow here:

and NOAA here:

showing gusts up to 30! Better hold on tight, boys!

The starting sequence is as follows:

1.  Ruff Rider
2.  Zhik II
3.  Quiksilver
4. Zhik III
5. Chums
6. Yost
8. Monkey Business
9. Salva Vida
10. Zhik I
11. Jack Flash
12. Dallas
13. Yo Baby
14. Cat Alley
15. Sailboat Shop
16. Poison Girl

Last year's winner, Team Ruff Rider, has the lead right from the Le Mans-style start. We'll see just how long they can hold off the big boats. Be sure to follow all the action on our live page here:
