Key-ed Up!

Key-ed Up!

We have been working nearly non-stop these past days to get our final arrangements in place for our biggest On-The-Water Anarchy report ever – from next week’s 2009 Key West Race Week.  We know just how many of you have to stay home this year, and we put together an OTW effort that we guarantee to keep you entertained all week.  Of course we will bring you our usual valiant efforts on the race course, with video from pro film dude “the rev petey,” pro photography from Mer and a handful of other chick shooters, and live commentary from yours truly.  We’ll also bring you the most up-to-date info from off the course, reports from chaotic places like Sloppy Joe’s and the SA party, and probably a few Teaser’s stories as well.

And we have some new surprises for you:  a daily high-quality highlight reel with Petey’s golden touch ( Jobson is going to swallow his lunch when he sees how a real filmmaker does it), two coverage boats, some local female talent aboard our coverage boat to bring a little sexiness to the report (pray for bikini weather), a huge pile of contests and giveaways (and yes, we’ll be getting to some of those other winners that we owe swag to), big product discounts and specials, and much, much more.  These new features have only been possible with the unwavering support of a great group of advertiser/sponsors, and in a rough time, they’re still doing their part to make sure that every sailor in the world can still be entertained next week.  So accept that there will be some logos, links, and commercials during our report (the price of free entertainment of this caliber), and start showing them how much you appreciate their contribution now by checking out their websites, and maybe even thanking them for being part of something so fun.  The popularity of OTW Anarchy gives us the luxury of choosing who we want to work with – and we only choose people we respect and products we enjoy to be a part of 2009 Key West OTW Anarchy, presented by Quantum.
