This sounds like a really interesting event, worthy of consideration! I'll discuss it with the crew. Maybe Larry would even like to bring Debbie and Yogi Bear out to join the fun?
BTW, you might want to update the title of your post, or perhaps start a new one. I'm an active C&C 27 racer (see link below), but a somewhat infrequent visitor to the forum, and I almost overlooked your post. Perhaps something like "Race the Cape, 2014: Racing on Cape Breton's Bras d'Or Lakes" might garner a little more attention?
We'll give this some thought and get back to you.
