Southwest Florida Yacht Club, “The Cruisingest Yacht Club in the USA®”, is continuing its popular Local Waters Seminar in October & November 2017.  We have now partnered with the four United States Power Squadrons in SW Florida (Cape Coral, Fort Myers, San Carlos Bay, and Sanibel Captiva) to expand on the material presented.  The seminar, developed as a service to the local boating community, discusses local water tips “beyond the charts” and our many nearby boating destinations based on SFYC member experiences and insights.

The fall 2016 and winter 2017 offerings of the seminar were all fully booked with over 400 attendees.  Most of the seminar attendees were experienced boaters who seemed to enjoy learning more about the local waters from other boaters and sharing valuable information only gained through experience.

SFYC will be hosting three additional sessions of the Local Waters Seminar in January & February 2018.  The seminars are free and are open to the public.  This seminar is for anyone who would like to learn more about our many nearby boating destinations: where to go, how to get there and what to expect along the way and when you arrive.  Active boaters, of course, but people in areas such as the boating industry, media, hospitality and real estate may find it informative as well.

The next two sessions of the Local Waters Seminar will be held on Thursday, October 26, and Thursday, November 9.  Each session runs from 6:30 – 9:00 pm at The Marina at Edison Ford (Pincher’s) at 2360 W 1st Street, Fort Myers.  Registered attendees will enjoy a free drink, compliments of SFYC.  Please reserve your spot by contacting Harvey Steele, SFYC Commodore at or 239.671.8887.  You can learn more about this seminar at the Southwest Florida Yacht Club website
