2008 Wrecker's Cup Race Series - Race Form
TRADITION OF KEY WEST
A SERIES OF RUTHLESS ONE-WAY RACES TO THE REEF TO CLAIM THE BOOTY

This all-in-fun race series recalls the tradition of the “wreckers” in the Key West of the 1800’s. Vessels laden with rich cargoes from the Gulf and Caribbean ports often times became victims of storms and the unmarked reefs off Key West. The first wrecker to reach the site had the responsibility to save the crew and passengers -------- but they also won the right to salvage the cargoes. The first wrecker to reach the vessel was entitled to the major share of the booty. Some historians have written that it was not unusual for 20 to 30 boats to race to a wreck.
