Anchoring for Strictly Sail Miami

I have not been to the Miami sailboat show before and was wondering if sailing the boat there and anchoring out was a good way to go? Are there any anchorages close by and what would be the best transportation methods to get to the boat show.

I have been to the Annapolis boat show a couple of times by boat and it was set up well for boaters to get to the show.

This show is not set up for anchored boats like Annapolis. You can get about a mile away and anchor. The best place to anchor is at Watson Island. There are a ton of boat there most of the time so anchoring might be a bit tricky. Dinghy in and I am sure there will public transportation to the show. As far as dinghy in to the show both Sea Isle and Bayside, I believe do not have dinghy docks. I would call the show to see what they might provide. Let us know what they say.

Depending on your dingy and how far you want to go in it, you can anchor at the Marine Stadium.

You could get a mooring ball by Dinner Key Marian in Coconut Grove and take the MetroRail downtown to Bay Front Center. The Coconut Grove Art Festival is that same weekend and is worth a visit. Visit us over at the Coconut Grove Sailing Club for a beer too.

Not to Hijack this thread, but we should have a Sailnet Meet-UP for the Miami Boat Show. Maybe I should start a new thread. Sundowners on my boat anytime during the show. I should be working the SSCA both during the show. I haven't heard yet what times I will be working.
Stadium bay is an good choice. Well protected. Can take the bus system there to the show or I can take someone when I go. I can sponsor anyone to the Rickenbacker Marina to use our dinghy dock. Email me here.
Dinner Key is another good choice as mentioned. If out on the moorings, they now have a water taxi until 6pm I believe, so you don't have to launch the dink. Be advise, the mooring have no protection from any wind or waves.
