Cruise to Mandalay Channel. March 17,18


This is cruising event with a little bit of something for everyone in the club. Whether you have a boat for overnight stays, or just a short trip down the ICW, want to paddle over to the barrier islands, or even just drive to the beach for dinner and a sunset.

We plan to anchor in the Mandalay Channel between Clearwater Beach and Island Estates near 27-59.07 N and 89-49.22 W on Saturday afternoon March 17. The Mandalay Channel is accessed by heading NW along the marked channel leaving the ICW just north of the Clearwater causeway bridge near ICW R16, and following the channel toward Caroulel Yacht Club. Bearing due south just past R14 rather than following the channel toward Caroulel takes you to the Mandalay channel and a well protected anchorage.  If you do not plan to anchor overnight, you can raft up to one of the DBC boats already there for cocktails and catch a ride to shore for dinner, or tie up at the public docks before dinner.

Around 6pm, we will depart across the channel to the dinghy dock near the city tennis courts for a short walk to the Palm Pavilion Grill on Clearwater Beach for dinner and a beautiful sunset. If you plan to come by car, sign up below and enter the number planning to attend for dinner.
