Default Info / roll call for FMO Sat. April 4 / 15 fun run & “cook out” at Cayo Costa Beach

With our FMO season soon winding down, what could be better than us getting together at the beach at Cayo Costa. So the plan is to not only have a beach day, but to get a number of charcoal grills together and barbeque up our favorite dishes on the beach. Can't wait until we light up the grills with chicken, sausage, ribs, shrimp, hot dogs or burgers all nicely done. It will be everyones responsibility to bring along their own food and grill as well as any salads, condiments and paper plates etc. Do not worry if you do not have your own grill as I expect there will be plenty of them there and a willingness to share.

If you are planning on attending this event, please let me know by Thursday evening, April 2nd so we have an idea who all is coming. We will publish a list of attending boats as usual on the clubs event thread on OSO. Last minute entries are fine as well and no head count is required as we are not going to a restaurant this time. You may e mail me, or post up on the OSO event thread. Attending Captains should read this information carefully to minimize any confusion.

This event is free of charge to paid up FMO club members so come out and have a great day on the water and at the beach with like minded powerboat enthusiasts. So lets all head out to Cayo Costa for a great day at the beach with our FMO friends.

Start / Finish:

We will meet on the south side of the Sanibel Bridge and leave by 11:00 AM sharp. As always the completion of the fun run is on our arrival at our lunch stop, in this case Cayo Costa Beach. Later in the afternoon boats will depart on their own accord at a time that suits them. It is common for small groups of boats to leave together for home or points elsewhere.

Route:

I will act as the pace boat taking the group up the Intra Coastal Waterway (ICW) to Cayo Costa. Any boats wanting to run offshore and meet us at Cayo Costa are welcome to do so. I expect we will arrive at the beach about 11:45 AM.
I will run with the yellow flag up the first couple of miles until we pass under the westerly span of the Sanibel Causeway at which point I will lower the flag and the pace boat may be passed. Everyone can set their own comfortable pace. Please be aware that the ICW can be busy and as always, we need to respect others using the waterway giving them a wide berth. Just a word of caution: We sometimes see boats “cutting the corners” outside the marked ICW channel and causes us concern that following boats that may not have “ local knowledge ” could have a deeper draft and find themselves in trouble. I would try and avoid that for the sake of any that may be visiting from outside the area and following along. Our run will take place at mid tide, still a time to be careful.

Membership information:

All vessels participating in FMO events are required to have a club membership and provide proof of insurance. Memberships are on a calendar year basis and if you have not yet renewed your membership, or are new and wanting to join the club, you may do so online. Your membership will be good until Dec 31, 2015. Just go to www.ftmyersoffshore.com and click on “Membership” where you can provide your info and pay using PayPal or alternatively download the form and mail it in. You may also join / renew at any event during the lunch stop however it saves us time if done online.
A current copy of your vessel insurance information should be e mailed to FMO board member Eric Belisle at [email protected] or to me at the address below and I will forward on to Eric.

Fuel / Distance:

From the Sanibel Bridge to Cayo Costa and back to the start should be about 60 miles maximum, so not a very long run. 93 octane is very difficult to find these days so please leave with a full tank if you use high octane fuel.

Food:

Lunch: As mentioned in the pre amble above we will be preparing our own lunches. If you are wanting do something a bit easier, feel free to bring along your own lunch and beverages to be had at your convenience at the Cayo Costa beach stop.

Communication:

Inter boat communication will be on VHF channel 72. My cell number is 239-776-0481. Anyone dropping out after the start should let me know so we do not spend time either waiting or looking for you. Leave a voicemail if no answer.
