B.E.E.R. 2005

Backwater Environmental Escape Rendezvous 2005


For those of you that have attended one of the first 3 B.E.E.R. Cruises, you know that they have been growing by leaps and bounds, and this past year was no exception. What started in 2002 with 25 boats, has more than doubled in two years to 48 boats arriving in Pensacola, Florida in June of 2004. All of this is based on the idea that Doc started with Mead Madness, a coming together of trailer sailors to enjoy each others company, get acquainted with new friends, and give people the opportunity to visit new sailing grounds.

With this in mind, B.E.E.R. Cruise 2005 has a date and destination to be announced. The dates will be May 20 - 24, 2005, and the destination will be Navarre, FL and Pensacola Beach, FL. This is the same route that was tried two years ago when the weather decided to pounce on the group. The G.R.I.T.S. personnel that is in charge of the weather, has promised to use "Fresh" tea leaves and Lizards Tails this year.

Plan on bringing the family, pack a good supply of party hats, and prepare to have the time of your life, as we expect to have a record crowd again this year, possible reaching 60+ boats. This year, we will be having another "Cajun" feast, put on by our resident Big Easy Chefs, that will take place at the Skippers Meeting, so plan to be hungry. We will also be offering a chance to remember many of the faces and events of the cruise on CD this year. More on this will follow soon.

As in the past, this is not a sanctioned event, each skipper will be responsible for his or her own vessel and crew. As far as coming to the Gulf Coast region and being part of this group, there is absolutely no cost involved. Cost you will incur will be marina fees, which should be around $30, and the cost of the "Cajun Feast" and picture/video CD if you choose to purchase these.
