 Record run Around Long Island
September 19, 2013

Matthew Gordon and Ed Dawson made a gallant attempt to break the ‘AROUND LONG ISLAND Record’ in their 37’ Hustler Talon Cat, but fell short after running into mother nature’s ‘big seas’ as they passed Smithtown Bay and approached West Hampton, NY. 

They started just after 8 am at Buoy 32A, located mid-sound between Greenwich, CT and Oyster Bay, NY, heading East at 90+ MPH. they carried enough fuel in their 4 tanks to make it non-stop, but again, the water conditions changed rapidly and brought them to a 50 mph pace…not enough to sustain or endure the full 271 mile challenge.

They returned to port, frustrated…but not defeated. They are safe and the boat is unharmed.

They will try again very soon…stay tuned.

The GPS replay by Kattack is available along with pictures and video.

* The Poker hand played requires no skill or knowledge of poker. The cards dealt out during the event will be done so randomly and all players then compare their hands, and a winning hand is declared.
The combinations and rankings of cards will be displayed on the day of the event. Any identical winning hands will be resolved with a simple cutting of a fresh deck.

The National Powerboat Association is dedicated to the advancement of powerboating in America
through event promotions and productions and as a purveyor of powerboats, powerboat equipment, videos, and sportswear. 
Conceived in 1976 with various regional events and upgraded in 1982 to national events,
the N.P.B.A.'s boating experience assures premium shows and quality products.
