Not that it would help picking a fight with the poor bridge tender, but boats were here before automobiles, so if I read correctly boats are allowed priority through bridges (unless an emergency, etc.).

I do believe that particular bridge in question has scheduled openings if boats are around. But we got through last time with a quick hail on the handheld VHF. It didn't hurt that Tim offered to throw a beer up to him...

I doubt that would be an issue. The road isn't all that heavily traveled and we were pretty efficent getting through the bridge. The fleet was through the bridge in 5 to 8 minutes tops.

Have you met the F16 crowd? Two hours, minimum.


I'm boatless.

Any sailor worth his nads should be able to heal his boat over 45 degrees and sail under that bridge, it's pretty high. Heck, I'll do it with my kite up, solo!

After watching Lionel Messi play, I realize I need to sail harder.

My F16 Viper is for sale and is actually very close to the venue as this is my home club! It is an excellent boat and if anyone would like to take a look at it/test sail I can organize that at the venue.

Check out the ad here:



Feel free to call me at 941-465-9862 and leave a message. This will be a great event!
