Don Aronow racing film

Just wanted to share the only known film in full color of Don Aronow racing his 32 foot Cary with his helmet off.

Put up a short clip on the banana boat co site. It is under the section, "Should I buy a banana?" Enjoy the film and the site.

Your welcome....it is an honor to have you appreciate our efforts to keep the history of the sport alive.

Don's oldest son Michael and I, are working on a DVD that will include the whole race footage and a lot of rare pictures of Don, that Michael didn't use when he wrote his book .."King of Thunderboat Row."

We hope to have it ready for sale on the HORBA site by the time of the Don Aronow Memorial race that will be held on June 20th from Miami to Bimini and back.....real ocean racing again.
