Tavares Vintage Race Boat
March 19-21, 2010
After many years of wanting to make the Mt
Dora/Tavares ACBS boat show and many years of excuses, this
is the year that we finally made the
trek south to sunny and warm Florida. We hauled
My Precious to participate at both the
Race Boat Regatta and then the Tavares Antique &
Classic Boat Show the
The weather was sunny and warm, the vintage race boats were
beautiful and fast, and we had a great time.

We left Wolfeboro, NH on Wednesday
morning, March 17th and arrived in
sunny & warm Florida on Thursday evening. Upon arrival, a time
to celebrate our successful trek at JJ Fins Dockside in Tavares.
We were very tired, but also very excited - our first road trip
and vintage regatta of 2010 ???!!!
On Friday morning, we made the rounds to several
local shops. Many thanks to Tom D'Eath and Bill Feikert
for the tour and all the fun.
On Friday afternoon it was time for registration and to setup
the hot pit area.
Then on Friday evening, after the hot pits were setup, it was
time to party.
After a good night's sleep, on Saturday morning we
attended the Driver/Rider Meeting and then it was time
to Rock & Roll !!!
On Sunday morning we got a few heats in before the
wind picked up, and then we had some fun at the awards
ceremony. We got the award for the team that traveled
the farthest distance to Tavares !!!
After the awards, Ruth & Leo
Croisetiere just had to get a photo of Tom D'Eath wearing one of
their R&L Engines
t-shirts, so we had some fun during the photo opt.
to Dick Whyte and the entire CRA crew for a fantastic vintage
event. We had a great time and now Tavares in on our annual
schedule, so look for our NH Navy again at Tavares in 2011
