That being said the competition this year will be ferocious. The weather is unpredictable this time of year but if it holds true to form it should be extreme. Photos will be coming

The amazing Fort Lauderdale beach - Home to Cat 44 sailing club

Fort Lauderdale South Beach is a beautiful strip of of white beach kissed by the Atlantic ocean. With the shallow continental shelf and the closeness of the Bahamas Islands, the beach is protected from large surf and this makes for easy launching through the surf, at any time of the year.

The warm Gulf Stream which makes its way up the coast from the Caribbean, ensures that our water temperature never drops below 70 degrees even in the winter.

Nautical Ventures Proud Sponsor of the 2011 Mid Winters regatta

With the great beaches, excellent launching conditions and warm water and weather all year round, it is no wonder that we consider ourselves the luckiest sailors on the planet. 


So if you are at all interested in sailing or just enjoying a great day on the beach, come on down and join us
