“You can sail a lot of places in the world but there are only a few spots that are really an experience. This is a fun town, and you can’t find a better combination than this. In the end, we’re still doing this for fun, and there’s something for everybody at Key West.” — Skipper of Daring, Swan 42

“To me, this is the premier event in North America. Of all the regattas we’ve won over the years, this one stands out because of the history and tradition. It means a lot to be able to say you won Key West.” — Skipper of Decision, Carkeek 40 Twitter link Facebook logo and link
