Valentines Day/ Couples Race on February 9, 2019 will complete the 2018 HISC racing season.  We are hoping for a lot of boats to compete in this race which will culminate with an After Race Party in Lake Boca hosted by cruising boats;  Duet, Paradocs, and Southwind.  The Chili cook-off competition was “fierce “  last year and we expect nothing less this year!  If the weather Gods bless us, we’ll start the race at 11:00am at our normal start.

From the Helm Jan 2019

Without thinking about it, or even knowing about it, we sail in historic waters. In this, my next to last From the Helm, we will very briefly discuss our home waters. My hope is to interest you to learn more of our nautical history. Ever since Ponce de León named the land "La Florida" historians have recorded our past. The story is often a tale of ship wrecks and disasters. European people, however, continued to arrive and ply the waters off of Southeastern Florida.

Happy Holidays!

The racing for HISC scheduled races is on Holiday and we will resume in February with the last race of our schedule from 2018.  It is the Valentines Day Race/Couples Race on February 9, 2019.  An announcement will be made prior to the race with details and Instructions.

Meanwhile, we’d like to Congratulate Sempre Amantes for their 2nd Place in the Wirth Monroe Race and Jaloha for competing.  It’s always a tough race especially with the start from Miami.

Good luck to Sempre Amantes in the upcoming FLL-KEY WEST Race on January 17, 2019.  We’ll be rooting you on!

Post-Thanksgiving Cruise

On a beautiful Friday morning, while the rest of the world was tackling the Black Friday shopping crush, we enjoyed a pleasant sail from Hillsboro to Palm Beach.  The Coast Guard escort past Mar A Lago was a nice touch.
