Clearwater Yacht Club

Clearwater Yacht Club
A Pirate Ship departing Clearwater Beach
We traveled from SPYC to Clearwater Beach to stay at the Clearwater Yacht Club. This club only has a few transient slips so if we are in Clearwater we usually stay at the Municipal Marina about 1 mile away. Since this was a Tuesday night we were able to obtain a slip. Nice club, with emphasis on sailing and racing. The club was hosting over 100 Lasers (small sailboats for one person) from all over the country. While there a member saw Island Hopper's hailing port of Cincinnati and introduced himself. He was also from Cincy, and happened to be an attorney. Jerry Harris by name. He spends the winter in FL and enjoys helping with the regattas at CYC.
After checking out the beach and the town by bicycle the crew had a nice meal at CYC.
