IT IS KEY WEST TIME! Today the first wave of Powerboats left Miami en route to Key West with 41 boats making the 160 nautical mile run. Right now in the weather in Miami is a little overcast and a little windy but it just doesn’t matter. When we all get to Key West the weather will be the last thing on our minds.
We go powerboating all year and go to many different events. All of the other events and just plain days on the water is great, but , it just cant compete with the Florida Powerboat Clubs Key West Poker Run! People travel from all over the world to run on this incredible powerboating event with over a 150 boats making the 160 nm one way run from Miami to Key West and others coming in from Florida’s West Coast and even some trailering down, the culmination of all these boats as destination in Key West really means something.
We plan, prepare, and strategize to put all of our plans together and just today we made hotel reservations and other arrangements for the 2015 Key West Run.
By the time we get there the races will have already started and plenty of people will be in town, but until we all arrive the place just doesn’t really take off and have the full atmosphere, because the 150 plus boats with each boats full entourage brings a huge impact to the overall event.
PowerBoatNation will be all over the event and we invite everyone to Poker Run Village for the welcome party at our booth. We will also be running around bringing you some excitement and surprises with the PBN Girls!
This is Key West Poker Run Week and we are ready to run!
