Conch Republic Naval Battle

For those new to the Independence Festival, on Friday evening a number of the sunset sail schooners engage the Coast Guard cutter in a huge water fight in the harbor at Key West. For those that have participated before you know what a hoot this is. As of this morning the Schooner Spirit of Independence has decided to participate in this years Battle. Reservations are $85.00 per person, which includes beverages and snacks. For reservations call Julie McEnroe at 305-923-0443. If interested, make your reservations quickly as the boat only has a maximum capacity of 35 people and will fill up fast.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in April
