What we're about

To start our group - we have been doing meet and greets. From there, you can mingle with the Skippers and see if there is room for you on a boat.

Based in Sarasota, FL, we are a Sailing Group for the Southern Tampa Bay area. All nautical events are welcome.

We plan cruises in the Southwest Florida area/Gulf, Intercoastal Waterway. Our plan is to post on this Meetup page, the dates of our scheduled events, including cruises. The details will be provided such as an anchor out/rendezvous point, GPS coordinates, etc.

Examples of vendors are used and new fishing supplies, power boat equipment, diving gear and sailing gear. Items will be available for sale and trade so bring your whole family.
