FLORIDA WINTER SERIES

SUN AND FUN

 

JACKSONVILLE, SANFORD (ORLANDO) AND ST. PETE

 

REGATTA SHEDULES

JACKSONVILLE: November 23-24

SANFORD (ORLANDO): December 6-8 and January 11-12

ST. PETE: FEBRUARY 14-16 (NOOD)

COME EARLY AND PRACTICE!!!!!--WHAT A CONCEPT

 

THREE COMPETITIONS:

  1. SCORING--YOUR TOP 8 RACES IN THE REGATTA SERIES
  2. DROWNED RAT—WHO HAS THE COOLEST OUT OF BOAT EXPERIENCE
  3. GIVE ME A BREAK—BROKEN MAST--AN EXPENSIVE WIN

 

Jacksonville: Sailed out of The Florida Yacht Club, offering panoramic views of the St. Johns River, a dynamic Jacksonville skyline and the race course is right off the dock!!  Plus Jacksonville University sailing team members are available to crew!!

 

SANFORD--A WONDERFUL LIFE: You know St. Pete, but what about Sanford-near Orlando--Sanford is wonderful sailing venue and offers, close by, all kinds of vacation opportunities.  Plus Sanford is small town USA.  Main street is a 4 minute walk from the regatta site with nice restaurants and bars!!!  Plus crew options available.

 

AND WE HAVE A DEAL:  You could leave your boat in Jacksonville to be picked up the next time you come to Florida--Sanford is 2 ½ hours and St. Pete is 5 hours away.  Plus Sanford is 2 hours from St. Pete.  All regatta locations have boat storage.

 

FOR SOME THE BEST CHOICE WILL BE TO BRING YOUR BOAT TO FLORIDA AND FLY BACK AND FORTH FOR SOME OF THE REGATTAS—NICE!!  YOU COULD LEAVE YOUR VECHILE OR DRIVE BACK AND FORTH FOR THE FIRST REGATTA, FLY TO THE OTHERS AND THEN DRIVE DOWN FOR THE SOUTHERN CIRCUIT.

 

If you would like us to take your boat (and vehicle) to Sanford or St. Pete that could be arranged.

 

THE SOUTHERN CIRCUIT STARTS IN ST. PETE MARCH 22-24 (yes 4 days!!) AND THEN ON TO SAVANNAH MARCH 27-28. YOU CAN BRING ALL THESE REGATTAS TOGETHER AND HAVE A FANTASTIC WINTER SAILING SEASON!!15 DAYS OF RACING!!!
