Races are slated to begin at 11:30 a.m. daily. Courses are set over an 8-mile stretch of the Atlantic Ocean just off Key West’s shore and inside the continental United States’ only living coral barrier reef.  

To view the action, fans can book seats on spectator boats ranging from excursion catamarans to historic tall ships. A walk along the waterfront at the Historic Seaport, or a visit to one of the kiosks is where people will find the current offerings. Prime land-based viewing spots include Key West’s Atlantic-front restaurants, resorts and beaches. The roof top of the Crowne Plaza, La Concha on Duval Street is on example of a very popular viewing spot.
