Your SFWA Board of Directors is in the final stages of preparation
for what we feel will be a fantastic May event.
Although the details may change slightly, we've proposed a 'long-distance'
cruise to one of South Florida's most serene and beautiful islands,
Boca Chita Key. A former hideaway for the rich and famous in
the early 1900s, Boca Chita is now Biscayne National Park's most popular island.
Boca Chita Lighthouse
Situated some 6 miles to the ENE of Homestead Bayfront Park,
Boca Chita has fantastic beach, BBQ and camping facilities. Depending
on the weather, we will be sailing from either Homestead Bayfront
Park or Matheson Hammock. We'll have a few powerboats in tow
that will carry BBQ supplies, any non-windsurfers and ensure
that we all make it safe and sound.
Once we arrive at Boca Chita, we'll have an afternoon of sailing,
fishing, snorkeling and great food and drink!
Boats will return participants and their gear back to Miami
later that day, or if you'd like, pack some camping gear and
spend the night!
If mother nature doesn't bring us a fresh breeze to aid our
passage across the bay, we still plan on making it over to Boca
Chita via powerboat for a day trip.
