It looks like maybe, after over 15 years, we have finally gotten the perfect formula for the Miami Cruiser’s Party. Perfect weather, a perfect location, the perfect number of pizzas (we ran out as the last person walked by the pizza table!), the perfect band (the Eric Stone Band, or course!) and the perfect amount of free beer!
The staff at the strictly Sail Miami show gave us the perfect spot for the party, right on the water between the show boats and the open waters of Miami Bay. The folks at Halden Marine and Spectra Watermakers donated the grand prize for the raffle, a Spectra Watermakers, and the raffle raised funds for the Educational Tallship Foundation building the Tallship Mathew Turner in Sausalito for training new youth in sailing!
Our sponsors all kicked in to make this a truly great event. Fortress Anchors, UltraMarine West-Quickline, Beta Marine, Mack Sails, Sunsail Vacations,Copper Coat and Kanberra and Tradewinds Radio, along with all the vendors who donated raffle prizes, like Cape Hatteras Marine, Atomic Tape, and of course Cruising Outpost.
The bad news? This may be the last time the party will be held in this location, as next year rumor has it we will be re-locating to the main show at the Miami Marine Stadium. Only time will tell.
