The Florida Institute of Oceanography will anchor the RESEARCH VESSEL W.T. Hogarth at Cedar Key for ONE DAY, MARCH 30, ON DISPLAY & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
The recently launched R/V W.T. Hogarth is a 78 foot coastal class vessel built from the
ground up in Tarpon Springs Florida to be a state of the art research vessel. Costing over
$6 million dollars, this vessel will serve as a floating laboratory for decades to come advancing oceanography and training the next several generations of marine scientists
across the State. The Hogarth will be on display and open to the public at major ports
around the state of Florida for a limited period this spring. Please join us at one of the
port events below to learn more about this remarkable new research vessel, the Florida
Institute of Oceanography and its 30 members.
The 34th Cedar Key small boat meet is the first full weekend in May. In 2018 it’s May 4-6
The meet is still informal. There are no signups, fees, or planned events on the water. Tides & weather remain the organization. Members of the West Coast Trailer Sailing Squadron and the Florida Gulf Coast Traditional Small Craft Association will be in attendance.
All shallow draft boats are welcome: poled punts, paddled pirogues & rowed pirates’ gigs; catboats & catamarans; trimarans & proas; sampans, sharpies & scows, & duckboats & dinghies.
Cedar Key is known for its thriving food chain ashore & in the water. Two National Wildlife Refuges are here—Cedar Keys NWR & the Lower Suwannee NWR. Among Cedar Keys’ saltmarshes, & inshore & offshore islands, fishing, birding, bug, tide & weather observing are superb. ~Hugh Horton
