Re: Sailing South Florida with the teaching of the Shsmanic Wheel

I'm assuming you understand that taking people aboard your boat for money constitutes 'chartering' and this requires at the minimum an OUPV captain's 'license' from the USCG?
It has always been my impression that a 'retreat' is a period of group withdrawal for prayer, meditation, study, or instruction under a director, and a marina hardly fits in that definition, IMO. I would suggest that you concentrate more on quiet out of the way anchorages if you can find any in that area.
Anyway, good luck and I hope it works out well for you.
