Ten of only fifty slots on a Phatwater sprint across the Mississippi have already been filled. Other solo boat aficionados who wish to participate in "The Crossing" on Friday, October 11 need to act fast to get in on this one-mile race from the Vidalia side of the river, below the twin bridges, crossing to the Phatwater landing, Natchez UTH (under the hill). First prize is a cool grand.
The main event on Saturday, Phatwater/Halph-The-Phat, is an 18-mile mini-Phatwater for those who are still building endurance towards the full 42.5-mile monty. This mini-me will launch on the Louisiana side of the Mississippi at 10:30 am Saturday. $75 registration fee for both days.
