Would like to get your comments about various marinas, yacht clubs, or local sailor hangouts. Things like "snooty," "casual," "racing-oriented," "mostly kiddie instructional," etc.

Ranging pretty much anywhere from Venice down to Naples.
St. Charles YC is also an excellant club with a good, protected, harbor and one of our favorite stops with cruising. The only disadvantage is the distance up-river from the Gulf.
