It will be quiet(er) here in June after the winter cruisers move along. Usually someone is still promoting "Sail Away Sundays" which is just an excuse to get off the ball and go plonk around. Most everyone who participates is willing to take a few extras along...
Your 15' is perfect for cruising around the harbor, out Sister Creek, and even further on a nice day. Bring your handheld VHF
with you and get on the Cruisers Net (channel 68, 0900 every day) to find out what is going on local. Nets only run around 15 min or so in the summer, but can go for over an hour in the season. The facebook page listed above is also a good info source. Myself, I am facebook-free but lots use it I guess... Course I still have a flip phone
With the exception of a trip up to the C
aloosahatchee River this summer for a haul out
, I expect to be around the harbor for at least another year.
Give the Solitaire a call any morning after the net on 68 (I am your net controller on Wednesdays), or drop us a PM here as your trip gets closer.
Sorry to say that the manatees get harder to find as the water
warms up and they move back into the shade of the mangroves. Winter brings them up into the grass
flats, and the City Marina channel on a regular basis.
You will have a blast. (Bring bug spray for the mangrove trips)
