After competitiors rigged, de-rigged, rigged, the race was started at 10:05 a.m. with Ron Kern taking off as a port tack rabbit to the upwind mark at Hillsboro Inlet. The course was start at Vista Park, Hillsboro Inlet channel marker rounded to port, Port Everglades Inlet channel marker rounded to starboard and finish at Vista Park.
