Florida East Coast Rendezvous
Sue Pitchford, Cruising Committee Chair
The Cruising Fleet had their first of-the-season, out-of-the-clubhouse, rendezvous this past weekend. It was a gathering of AYC “snowbirds”
on the east coast of Florida. We deployed a completely new format, with
cocktail parties in Vero Beach and Jupiter on Friday night, topped off by a
Saturday afternoon barbecue in Stuart.
Michele and Bob Kelly hosted a sell-out crowd of 40+ at
their condo in Jupiter on Friday night. It’s the first time that we’ve had an
event in Jupiter, and the turnout is telling us we need to repeat this one. At
the same time, in Vero Beach, Heidi and Nils Salvesen, along with Jennifer and
Dave Lewis, hosted a smaller but enthusiastic group.
Both groups came together on Saturday afternoon. Elly and
Hank Libby hosted a poolside gathering at their home in Sailfish Point, in
Stuart. The weather was “Chamber of Commerce” perfect, the very reason
snowbirds head south! All in, the
setting was spectacular and everyone enjoyed the barbecue (especially the
ribs!) catered by the Sailfish Point Club.
Huge thanks go to all the hosts for their wonderful
