Back at Chelsea Piers

To find out more about our summer activities call 212-645-8813
Thanks to Meredith Kennedy for the photo.
Imagine our surprise when this picture turned up in our email …
We were heading north from Palm Beach to New York City when bad weather forced us to use the Intra Coastal Waterway rather than the ocean. Michele in Jacksonville, FL saw us go past, looked us up on the web and sent us the picture! Many thanks Michele, that was very kind of you.
Much More Than Just A Boat Ride
Recently we had the chance to work with the Freedom Waters Foundation.
“Freedom Waters Foundation’s mission is to improve the lives of individuals with special needs and veterans by providing therapeutic marine related experiences on the waters of South Florida.”

Palm Beach Vintage Regatta
Boat fans, February 21st 2015 is your day. Get along to the Palm Beach Vintage Regatta and you will have a great time.
“On February 21st, 2015 The Palm Beach Vintage Regatta invites you to be a part of its Inaugural Antique Yacht Exhibit and Sail Races. To see who will win the Cup join us at the beautiful downtown West Palm Beach waterfront. This is a spectator event and is open to the public.
The Palm Beaches has a long history of being one of the finest yachting destinations in the U.S. with yachts hailing from ports across the globe. Regattas and races are part of our history and date back to the 1920’s. Well, we embrace our past. The legendary Palm Beach Cup was held right here between the Flagler Memorial and the Royal Park Bridges.
In years past, the docks were alive with some of the most magnificent works of art handcrafted of wood. Many of these beautiful yachts still exist including “HONEY FITZ”; The Presidential Yacht, which served five United States Presidents, and many other distinguished yachts with be on display. The City of West Palm Beach’s Flagler Drive docks provides a perfect setting for land displays of watercraft and other exhibits”.
Mariner III will be in action at the regatta.

We Have a Stowaway
Mariner III is sailing south from Palm Beach to Miami for a charter at the Art Deco Fountainbleu Hotel.
We seemed to have gained a stowaway!
It’s a flat sea and we are making about 10 knots. The journey to Miami takes about six hours as it’s 60 Nautical miles from Palm Beach Inlet to Miami Government Cut Inlet.
