SEAFARERS CRUISING CLUB         Harry Ensley, Commodore,,

                                Well, the Thirteenth annual Seafarers
                                Regatta is history. In fact, it was about
                                history. At least, it was about the history
                                of the 1960’s, or what we remember the
                                1960’s were like. We had hippies, rock
                                stars, lots of tie-dyed shirts and lots of
         guys with long hair. We also had lots of fun reliving the good ole
         days. The weather at Burnt Store Marina in early November was
         fantastic, perfect for sleeping in the boats, soaking in the pool,
         playing bocce ball, mah jongg, Texas Hold-em or taking a nap.
         Regardless of what people did at Regatta, it was fun.

                                                           was the biggest Seafarers boating event in November, it wasn’t
                                                           the only one. We also had a lunch cruise to Captain Con’s Fish
                                                           House on Bokeelia. Although Captain Con’s has a full menu,
                                                           their fish chowder is a major attraction.

                                                           In December the Seafarers have the biggest party of the year,
                                                           the Change of Watch, which will be held on December 8 at the
                                                           Isles Yacht Club. At this event, in addition to dining and
                                                           dancing, the bridge of 2017 will hand off their duties to the
                                                           bridge of 2018. The C.O.W. is always a festive evening with
                                                           great food and entertainment.

                                                           We also have a Lunch Cruise to Miller’s Dockside Restaurant in

         Boca Grande in December, as well as other activities.
