Re: Florida sailing

Fort Lauderdale anchorage at $1,00/foot? It must be by the day. It will be hard to find an anchorage less than $8.00/ foot/month. Then you have to contend with bridges and lots of traffic. Miami, South of the Rickenbacker causeway is your best bet, but as NightOwl said, you may face draft issues with a keel longer than 5 feet. There is lot of traffic in Miami, but then, there is also a lot of space. Biscayne bay is great with many sights, anchorages and good protection. I suggest you give the Coconut Grove Sailing Club a call. They are inexpensive, right on Biscayne Bay,have a great restaurant, close to everything, but no liveaboards. Their # is 305-444-4571. By the way, all they have is a mooring field with 24/7 security
