Longboat Key Marina
Kite Surfers on Tampa Bay
On Friday February 25 we left Pass a Grille and headed back to our home port of Longboat Key Marina. (http://www.longboatkeymarina.com/) Winds were predicted to be 15-20 knots from the south so we stayed "inside" until we crossed Tampa Bay heading south. WE took a channel paralleling the I 275 highway leading to the Skyway bridge until we entered the bay. with Fresh winds the kite and windsurfers were out.
After an uneventful cruise of 27 miles we arrived "home". WE hosed the salt off Island Hopper and headed home.
