The 2013 BEER Cruise in Pensacola, Florida

A few years back I learned about the B.E.E.R. Cruise in Pensacola and I have wanted to join in on the fun. Fun being sailing for a few days with several other sailboats, I don't think the cruise is focused on just BEER.

I made a little piece of artwork for this year's Cruise, it shows the route and destinations planned.

I have wanted to go ever since I found our about this rendezvous but I haven't been able to.  At first it was my boat (Watkins 29) was in Panama City and I didn't take it anywhere for some reason (many reasons).  Then I got rid of the Watkins and found my great little Montgomery 17.  I had the Montgomery last year in time for the Cruise but I didn't make due to conflicting dates with other plans.  This year will be different!  My calendar is already marked and I have a buddy to join me.

Although it's almost 6 months away I am already excited about it.  I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that there will be so many different boats there, in the last few years they have reported as to have had over 50 boat join in!  Most of them being trailerable sailboats similar to mine with a some larger boats too.  For a sailor (or me at least) one of the joys is meeting other sailors and checking out there boats!  I cannot wait for that!

I'm sure time will fly by and the BEER Cruise will be here before I know it.  I have a lot going on in my life now like getting married in less than 3 months and possibly a mission trip to El Salvador!

The last night for the BEER cruise is at sailboat cove which is east of Redfish point.

Thanks for the comment! Before I made that photo I tried to find Redfish Point and Sailboat Cove but had trouble nailing down an exact spot. I just Googled it some more and it appears local knowledge and cruiser knowledge is a little different on the subject. What do you think? Just South of Ft. Mcree? Or a little West of it? I'll redo the photo.

Anonymous, there we go! Does that look better for night 4? I think "somewhere in that general area" is where we may end up.
