2018 Cedar Key Small Boat Meet May 4-6
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
