The 34th* Cedar Key Small Boat Meet is the first full weekend in May. In 2019 it’s May 3rd, 4th & 5th.
The meet is still informal. No signups. No fees. No planned events on the water. Tides & weather remain the organization. Weather is usually quite good with afternoon high tides.
All shallow craft are welcome: dories & dinghies, catboats, beach cats & trimarans, sharpies & sampans, cuddy daysailers, any or all driven by pedals, engines or motors, along with oars, paddles, & sails. Pot luck dinner Saturday night.
The Cedar Keys & the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuges are as enchanting as ever. The food chain is full in the water & ashore. Roseate Spoonbills have increased.
* Chris Harkness found dates on black & white negatives showing this is the 34th boat meet, not the 35th. Thank you, Chris, for the correction &, again, for starting the meet 34 years ago. ~Hugh Horton
