I live in Driftwood Key just 5 minutes drive from Hansville and the Hansgrill, which is litteraly next to Norwegian Point County Park. Yesterday I talked to the owner of Hansgrill and he/they are excited about the Seventy48 race and will do all they can to support us. They are open 7:30am to 10pm Tuesday and Wednesday and the beach in front of the store/restaurant is their property. In other words you can pull in to Norwegian County Park or stores beach and have a rest, get some food, fill up with drinks and use their restroom before the next long hall.
I have used this spot as my own landing place for a rest and refueling on many a paddle. The park has a grassy area that can be good for a little nap.
This will be your last chance for a proper refueling spot before the finish lane almost 20 miles ahead, happy journey to us all.

Thanks, Helge
