With just 200 days to go until the race begins at Hollywood Beach, FL, the Worrell 1000 has a full roster of 17 teams representing 6 countries, including returning champions Randy Smyth (6-time Worrell Champ) and Rod Waterhouse (4-time Worrell Champ).

The event will be run on Formula 18 boats launching from and finishing on select beaches from Hollywood, FL to Virginia Beach, VA. It's 1,000 miles of offshore sailing for only the most daring and capable sailors, such as Katie Pettibone and Carolijn Brouwer - a pair of sailors with Volvo Cup and Olympic Campaigns under their belts. Some returning Worrell competitors just can't shake the bug - Gerard Loos from Spain, Chris Green and Larry Ferber with their crews from the 2019 race are back, and a son of a former competitor - Jared Sonnenklar - will be continuing the family legacy of Worrell racing.

The awards banquet and ceremony will be held the FOLLOWING day after the finish in Virginia Beach on Sunday May 22nd. The Worrell 1000 Organizing Authority and Race Committee will have special guests on hand, and they hope to have the parents of Sandra Tartaglino to present the event's new Sportsmanship Perpetual Trophy awarded in their daughter's memory.

If you have never experienced the thrill of the Lemans-style start off the beach of the Worrell, with ground crews feverishly pushing their teams through the surf and the crowds cheering them on - you are truly missing out. Will YOU be at one (or more) of the starts in 2022? You should be....
