Reviews:

"I have to announce that ,while the dining is great, the biggest attraction to me is the camaraderie if the members. The enthusiasm of the tennis players, the Pool sharks and the card groups is contagious. I have been overjoyed with our membership at the Isles Yacht Club."

"The B. R. Cohn wine dinner was top notch. Six of us at the table were discussing the Disney Food & Wine Festival for this fall. We have attended it for the last four years. After three courses of the dinner, we were questioning how are dinner compared to Disney. After the sixth and last course, the six of us decided the Isles dinner was as good as Victoria and Albert at Disney, but better because it was only half the price. With four of these special wine dinners a year, you can pick and choose or do them all."

"My wife and I just returned from a fabulous trip to Captiva Island Yacht Club. Our major reason for joining the Isles Yacht was to take advantage of the reciprocal agreements with the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs. We have found all the yacht clubs we have visited to be very friendly (they treated us like we were members of their club), the food always very good to excellent, and plenty to do in and around each club. We are active cruisers, and we found that each month if we stay overnight for just three nights at different FCYC clubs, that more than pays for our monthly dues at the Isles Yacht Club."

"Exceptional food, service and decor. Perfect for a nice dinner. Save up some $$ before you go though!!! Also you can only eat here if you are a member so grab one and become friends..."

Reviews:

"Being a Member at SPYC and Living on the Beach makes this place Paradise for any boater or beach going member... it is a great stopping point en route to your destinations for the day. Make sure to request Nicholas M. as your server whether inside or outside dining, he is a hard worker and will make your experience the best possible at all times! From one member to all, Nick is a great example of Perfect Service and Professionalism, and the reason why I visit this location."

"Former PAGYC now owned by larger prestigious SPYC. Building, docks and parking have been substantially upgraded, but the club still offers the same small friendly environment and good food. Just a walk away from the beach, arriving here feels like you are on a small island, great bars and restaurants are never far away. Club is a member of the FCYC and has full reciprocal arrangements with most of the other clubs. Members and their guests are welcome. Transient dockage is available to FCYC members only, call for reservations."

A Norther Exposure

I don't know how many of you have seen my boat Thumper. It is a modified 25' Swedish-built power cruiser into which I installed a 10hp single-cylinder Saab Norwegian wnk-bon engine that swings an 18" variable-pilch prop. With 10 "draft horses," I have learned to trust the boat in all kinds of weather. The Saab has never failed, even once, in many Bahamas round trips from Hilton Head SC.

After quite an adventure transiting the SouJh Bight of Andros. I was anchored in the worst holding anchorage in the whole of the Bahamas- Fresh Creek. There was an approaching cold front coming down from Florida with 40 knot winds reported. One report from Rick WD6LNH had 60-knot gusts. I realized that I would drag for sure al Fresh Creek. All the moorings were taken and besides. I have an aversion to taking them. So after thinking about it for a few minutes, I decided to head tor Morgans Bluff. knowing full well that the front would pass over me while en route. I have often wondered what it would be like offshore during a strong fiontal passage. This was my chance to discover lor myself what was really so awful about Northers. On Sunday morning, February 23, at 0700 I upped the three anchors I had laid down in hopes of staying put in the blow and headed offshore bound for Morgans Bluff. I planned to meet David KE4BHJ and Mindy KE4BHK aboard Little Cruiser who were waiting for me. I didn't think there was much cur- rent in the Tongue-of-the-Ocean so the strong winds that were coming would not react adversely as they would in the Gulf Stream. It took about three hours to get half to Morgans Bluff, and then the front hit us.The winds before the front were about 20 knots from my Port Stem Quarter. The seas were four to five feet and breaking with white caps everywhere. Thumper does well in a following sea and the old Autohelm was handling her very well. I was just an observer to this whole adventure, hanging on, of course. Thumper normally cruises about 5,5 knots, but that day, running down wind with all those seas, we were doing about 7,5 knots. That's really smoking for Thumper. I had been watching the approaching cold fitml for about two hours and it was getting pretty close. There was an awful looking roll cloud near the water and nothing but black every- where else behind. Soon I could see the leading edge of the wind on the water and it was moving very fast in my direction. Pretty scary looking, which made me wonder if I had made another bad mistake. The frontal wind was coming at Thumper from about 11 o'clock and moving fast. I left the auto pilot engaged and watched the storm approach. When the leading edge hit us it had to have been blowing at least 40 knots. Thumper doesn't have much windage, so the wind didn't do much to us, but the wind swung one hundred eighty degrees and started knocking the whitecaps over backwards and almost immediately started blowing down the wave height. Very shortly those five footers were down to about two feet. The wind, still blowing at least 40 knots, was getting ready to start building up some serious seas of its own when it started raining so hard that it kept the seas from building up at all. At one point the seas were actually flat even though the wind was still blowing 40. Quite an interesting show.[...]

Yacht Club Reviews:

" have had many special events at Epping Forest over the past 10 years, including my own wedding, Dad's retirement party and several bridal and baby showers. One might wrongly assume that Epping would be expensive but it is very reasonable and the staff is incredible. Epping Forest consistently provides exceptional service at every event. If you think you might have forgotten a detail, don't worry--they've already taken care of it! Not only will your event be staffed with courteous, polite, cordial workers but Epping does not gouge you on food, alcohol or any extras. Before you book a hotel for your wedding or special event, you have to give Epping Forest a shot. You will NOT be disappointed!"

"My family and I visited some friends who live in the community. The staff was warm and welcome and the food was out of this world. It's a beautiful community with amazing views. We were very impressed from start to finish. Best club in Jacksonville."

La calida de sus instalaciones y del complejo residencial en si hace que se disfrute desde que se entra por sus puertas. Encontrarás a personajes muy especiales, a muchos famosos que quieren pasar desapercibidos y éste es el lugar para ellos. Si buscan un lugar para residir en el sur de Florida, no duden en visitar ésta club, es espectacular, y su personal inmejorable"

Boat Club Reviews:

"Carefree Boat Club of Largo was the answer to all my boating needs. My husband and I were looking to purchase a boat to use in The Tampa Bay Area and we decided to go with Carefree Boat club instead. We are very pleased with the service and the ability to work with our schedule. They even will come in early to see my husband off for a early fishing expedition. The boats are kept up and are in excellent condition. Check out this boat club before you purchase a boat!"

"Such a wonderful experience! Carefree Boat Club offers the best boats! They are very well taken care of and kept high and dry instead of in the water. I was very impressed with the employees and all the help that they give. If you are looking for a Boat Club in the Tampa bay area this club is worth checking out!!! It is close to my home in Largo so it is easy to access!"

"Best Tampa Boat Clubs around! Carefree Boat Club is a great alternative to owning a boat because we don't have to worry about boat maintenance. I was shocked when I came into the marina for the first time and they told me they always clean the boats for us too!! My family used to do boat rentals in Tampa Bay but that got too expensive. If you are looking for Boat Club Coupons check them out online. They are reasonable and I thought were more friendly than the other boat clubs in Tampa. I appreciate everything you have done for me and I'll always have a Carefree Boat in my life:)"

"Best Customer Service I have come across in a long time. I joined this club last year and the owner, Marty, has walked me through the steps of their Tampa boat club and I can say I am comfortable at the helm now by myself. Nice Clean Boats and the are maintained to a "T"! They always have my favorite Pontoon Boat available in the marina. I love to go out on Tampa Bay and relax in the warm sun with my family. I am happy with my Boat Club Membership and these people know how to run a business. I'll never look for Boat rentals in Tampa Bay again after finding them. You guys are appreciated and my family thanks you for all the kindness too."

"This is the best way to enjoy the Bay Area! Not only do you get to enjoy the boats, and by that I mean ALL of them, you don't have to worry about the clean up after!!! I have to say this is the Best of all the Tampa Bay Boat Clubs! I recommend this club to anyone! I would suggest if you are thinking about joining, go in and see Marty and the boats. You will see how well the boats are maintained and kept! The Staff is always ready to help and greets you with a smile. They live up to their name! They really are Carefree!"

"Best Boat Club in Tampa bar none from the research I have done. There are a couple other national chains to choose from but if you want a more laid back family atmosphere, I'd choose Carefree Boat Club over Freedom Boats or any of the other small outfits. These guys at Carefree clean their boats and maintain their boats more than any other club have seen. Their fleet isn't as big but is growing so they offer Boat Club Coupons in Tampa online if you need discounts. I recommend them to all my friends:)"

"What an unbelievable experience!!! There is NO PLACE like Cannons. Before you book the boat rental of a lifetime from an extremely knowledgeable crew, arrange to stay in the most charming, cozy original '30s pine cottages, nestles in a stand of beautiful pine trees-the only thing between you and one of the moat beautiful beaches on the planet. It;s a little piece of heaven on earth :)"

"Great boat rentals! I live locally and I always come to Cannons Marina when I want to rent a boat for the day. The staff are nice and extremely helpful. I always have a great experience when I come here!"
