Key Biscayne Regatta 2009
The Regatta is back in action Saturday, March 14th! It’s the fifth annual so be ready! Not much more to say about that. Here’s a map:
I’ll repeat myself from last year about safety:
With the regatta just around the corner, I figured I’d lay out some pointers to maximize good, clean fun.
- Bring a towel.
- Be safe. I can’t stress this enough. Last year some little posers had a fake regatta in the same spot as this one, and a kid drowned. Accidents can be avoided, so be safe. Not only is it a total bummer, but there’s also the heat…which leads to the next point.
- The authorities will probably be out there before you are; I’m pretty sure they know about the KB Regatta this year. Make sure the captain on your boat is alert and be sure to bring enough lifejackets.
- Bring food.
- DON’T POLLUTE.
Now that I think about it, I can’t imagine the guy that’s stupid enough to cause an accident, but smart enough to read this list, so try and spread the word to your friends with fewer braincells.
Let me add that the police actually tracked down Rudy and told him to tell people to play it safe, and not to try and swim out through people’s properties for which they don’t have permission.
Apart from that get out there and a have a good time!
