They're holding the annual Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix down here this weekend. Really fast boats racing around a course that is just barely out of range of the swimmers. I went out there, shot a couple of pictures, then had to sprint back to the car to 1. get out of the thousand degree heat, and 2. get away from the giant thunderstorm that dumped an inch of rain in the next hour. You couldn't tell any of that from the pictures, though. I thought the choppers were there strictly for shooting video and photos, but closer examination reveals there are suited up divers in some of them, ready to drop into the water in the event of trouble.
