Below is the watertribe tracking map from this morning showing the starting line at Fort DeSoto. You can see a handful of people starting or getting ready to start the race. Included in the group, located near the two skull and crossbones at the lower center, are Dawn and Alan. It looks like they are on the beach ready to go.
I don't know that it can be called a race for these folks. I believe they have missed the deadline for the first checkpoint and, unless rules are adjusted, are dq'ed. At this point I suspect the journey, particularly for those on the Ultimate Florida Challenge (a circumnavigation of Florida), has become a personal challenge and nothing more. The personal challenge, from my point of view, is more important than the race.
Weather looks good. Best of luck, Dawn and Alan, for a safe journey.
