    Course according to Speed on the Water's latest information.

    Ray LaBadie—the lead venue organizer for the OPA Worlds and concurrently running Englewood Beach Waterfest—is expecting 65 teams to show up this year. "We changed the course, which is 4.2 miles long, this year to make it more exciting,” said LaBadie “We went from two turns and two straights to seven turns, and the spectators will be able see the boats cross the start-finish line on the new clockwise course, which was a mile down the beach last year".

    Not sure why that would be better for fans? All of the sharp corners (Turns 3, 5, and 6) are farther offshore, as is the majority of the course? Or am I missing something?
    Getting bad advice is unfortunate, taking bad advice is a Serious matter!!

    maybe to make it interesting for those watching from boats ?

    No that cant be.They bring in ZERO revenue.

    I kinda like the turns ,it slows them down ,and makes for a lot of lead changes .

    Might be fun to watch .( I will watch online )

    I heard they classes with more than just one boat . RWO will be furious lol
