What are the names of the boat record attempts where they take off and have to get on the dock at the end? It’s a timed thing.

Was it a loto deal?

Can’t for the life of me remember.

No that’s against and with the current.

The races or record attempts I’ve seen they go from a certain spot to another spot and it’s times. But at the end someone has to leave the boat and run up a dock to the finish line.

Loto dam to dam has been a big thing on the last year or so. Bunch of offshore cats that are afraid to actually go run them offshore...

Oceans Cup have been doing big offshore stuff, last weekend they did West Palm Beach FL, to Grand Bahamas and back. They also do San Francisco to Long Beach, Huntington around Catalina and back, and a few others.

The one I always thought was cool was St Louis to New Orleans on Mississippi. No locks on the river until north of STL. I think its a little over 1000 miles.
