Might be difficult since it isn't like the embargo and travel restrictions have completely disappeared.
In general, big events
are started by calling lots of people, finding sponsors, and, in this case, a starting and ending sponsoring marina.
Before placing those calls, however, it is a good idea to have a solid business plan prepared.
What would you call it?
How many participants do you expect?
What time of year would be ideal?
Will there be any routing restrictions?
How much is insurance
going to cost for the organizers?
What kind of support team will be required?
How will you publicize it?
What kind of publicity will it garner?
What kind of boats?
Any crew requirements?
What legalities need to be tended to?
Most importantly: what is your theme song?
