Today Norm Sooy, Lou Salhany and I launched a new (hopefully) permanent buoy on the Gulf near 27 deg 08’ N, 82 deg 32’ W, which is pretty close to the published position of the virtual DRN mark.  The attached picture shows what it looked like in an  ~10 knot NE breeze this afternoon.


The purchase of the buoy and ground tackle was made possible by a gift from Generous Properties, the realty firm of former VSS Commodore Curt Cooke.  We hope to add another buoy to our race course soon.
