On October 6 & 7, 2012 join the oldest event on Biscayne Bay now known as the Bacardi Columbus Day Regatta. The waters of Biscayne Bay fill up with nearly 300 vessels racing throughout the weekend. After the races, participants head down to Elliot Key to put down anchor and party all night. Open to Beach Cats 14â€™ or larger and scored on the Portsmouth handicap system. Launching and trailer parking will be available at Shake-A-Leg Miami. The courses remain the same as the last 4 years so the Saturday finish / Sunday start is just north of Black Ledge, allowing sailors the easier option of returning shore side for the night or continuing down to Elliot. The Awards Party takes place on Sunday at Coral Reef Yacht Club.
