SandyBottom and SOS have finished the 2012 Ultimate Florida Challenge

At 12:07PM, Dawn and Alan Stewart, the mother and son team of SandyBottom and SOS, both veterans of WaterTribe’s Challenges, finished the toughest Challenge to date.  And they did it in style on Alan’s self-designed and built trimaran Mosquito.  In fact, they looked more rested after their run from Cedar Key to Ft. Desoto than they did almost THREE WEEKS AGO when I last saw them at CP-2 in Chokoloskee!  Their story, soon to be legend, will be told and retold in forums far and wide, so I am simply going to congratulate them, post some pictures, and think wistful thoughts of finishing the 2013 Everglades Challenge with even a modicum of the style, grace, and panache these two exhibited.  Get some rest you two… you deserve it!
