On Thursday, May 20, the 13 competing teams of the Worrell 1000 Race made a Frisco landing as one of the final legs of their multiple-day journey from Hollywood, Florida to Virginia Beach. The 1,000-mile catamaran race plays out in multiple stages, (from checkpoint to checkpoint), and the team with the shortest overall combined time wins.
After the Atlantic Beach, NC, to Frisco trek, the competitors hunkered down for the night at the Cape Hatteras Motel in Buxton before starting their next leg – Frisco to Kill Devil Hills – on Friday morning.
IFP Contributor Rory Kelleher was there to capture all of the action of the competitors’ showstopping arrival and dangerous departure around the Diamond Shoals during the Worrell 1000 racers’ overnight stop on Hatteras Island.
