St Petersburg Power and Sailboat Show with HideAway

Tis the season of boat shows along the west central Florida coast. It seems one of our sailing club members has experience building modern trade show booths and launched a project to include a BCYC booth at this year’s St Petersburg Power and Sailboat Show.

Apparently someone saw one on my videos on Sailing HideAway and asked if I’d mind doing a couple of more to promote Boca Ciega Yacht Club at the Show. “Sure, why not?” says I. Then the search for film, music and photos took the place of blogging for awhile.

Considering the St Pete Boat Show takes place under the shadows of the new Salvador Dali Museum along the downtown St Petersburg waterfront I should not have been surprised the last few weeks have included a touch of the surreal.

It’s all good though. The show runs December 1st through the 4th. Be sure to stop by if you’re in town. Here are the first two.  The third:  BCYC Cruising will be done soon.

Given the HideAways vast knowledge of racing all of the BCYC Racing footage came from someone else.
The Featured boat, Nikki, captained by Bruce Bingham, in red, not only won this race but also won the Suncoast BOTY trophy this year.
