“Sail the Tradition”
at Fort Myers Beach
In 1965, a few adventurous sailors placed a classified ad in the local newspapers looking for “Anyone interested in racing sailboats from Fort Myers Beach to Naples”. That first race led to an annual event that sailors in Southwest Florida look forward to each year – known as the Summerset Regatta. This was also the genesis of the racing program for Caloosahatchee Marching and Chowder Society (CMCS), now in our 50th year of operation. Today, sailors from Charlotte Harbor to Marco join in the fun of racing and cruising. Yachts race in Saturday’s buoy races and Sunday’s distance race(s) in the Gulf of Mexico near Fort Myers Beach.
