Cedar Key November 15-18, 2018

Photographs by too many Squadron members to name, but you'll recognize your shots! A great gathering! Thursday and Friday were too cold for most of us, but a hardy

group of beach campers including Dan Roeder - Wayfarer, David Heckman - SeaPearl, and Craig Skiles- Lightning. They sailed out to North Key and sheltered from the wind in McCrary Cove over night.

Friday night at Tony's was a fantastic chance to reconnect with everyone. We filled up the back room perfectly. Good service and pretty darn good food too, especially the chowder! Saturday was the best sailing day

that I can recall for quite some time. Over 20 Squadron boats filled the channeI between Way Key and Atsena Otie Key. I sailed out in Dale's Core Sound Mk III, and got to sail with David and Donna Bradley in their prototype SunCat!

Lots of attention was paid to Lonnie Black's reborn SCAMP, Glen Osoling's Crotch Island Pinky, Hugh Horton's new design Clam Girl, and Rob Hazzard's Coquina Cat Yawl.

I was very impressed with the sailing ability of Dale's Core Sound MK III. He's thinking of selling her, so keep that in mind. He has two Core Sound 17s and thinks maybe Lively, his day sailer is all he really needs.
