The Cruising Fleet enjoyed SPYC and downtown St Pete for the Easter Weekend. We welcomed new cruisers, the Lovell and Cichon families to our Cruising Fleet. Downtown St. Petersburg was lively all weekend. The Saturday morning market had lots to offer, as usual. Saturday night dinner at the SPYC was lovely with great conversation and laughter. After dinner, several stopped to hear the tunes and vocals of Tony playing the piano at SPYC. Several others ventured to find cigars and after-dinner drinks in the surrounding establishements. Sunday morning the Glass Easter Egg Hunt was a hit. Congratulations to cruiser Martha Bone who found not one, but two glass eggs. And to top it all off, the Easter Bunny stopped by the docks in the wee hours leaving everyone a surprise!
Join the fun in May/June starting with a race or rally (the rally allows several days to reach Ft Myers Beach and there are awards for Cruisers) to Ft Myers Beach with our Racing Fleet. The event culminates with a fabulous seafood feast party Saturday night May 28th. Afterward, the Cruising Fleet will continue to the Dry Tortugas, Marquesas Keys, Key West, and back to Tampa. You are welcome to follow along with us or do your own thing, whatever your schedule will allow. We’ll enjoy lots of adventure, snorkeling, swimming, sailing, exploring uninhabited islands, fun in Key West, and stopping at various marinas for more fun and relaxation on the way back to Tampa! Send an email for a tentative schedule of events.
