Transponders have been used since that timeand will be used again in the 2018 event.“The race is returning to Crazy Horse Campground’s Main Beach site forthis very important event”, said Jim Russell, “and the 10-mile course we have approvalfrom the Coast Guard will pit all the teams against the wind, rough water andlong runs that this event has become synonymous with.” In addition to all theweather and water conditions all the teams must contend with, they will also berequired to make fuel stops, without spilling fuel, and make rider changesseveral times during the race, while modifying their race strategies as therace progresses.
