We raced out Destin Pass once two days after a hurricane
on beach cats. (maybe early 2000's)
My son and I were on a Nacra 6.0.
There were maybe 60 boats in the race
which was a 100 miler that we usually can do in 12 hours or so. (but we finished this one at 0300 and after taking the sails
down and a shower
we were at the Waffle House on HWY 98)
Start off Leeside Park, Ft Walton Beach. Gun goes off at 0700.
You go out Destin Pass, in Pensacola Pass and back thru the narrows.
On this day, there was a 4'- 5' wall of water
in the middle of Destin Pass from the Hurricane
Runoff. I said to my 15 year old son....WTF? as we neared it then went over.
There was no wind on the way out just current and I was watching that jetty...........
