Hooray for Key West

Standard fare for this time of year, the spotlight on the happenings in early to mid-November arranged around the Southernmost point in the country—Key West, Fla.—begins to take focus. Between the Super Boat International Key West Offshore World Championships and the Florida Powerboat Club’s Key West Poker Run that departs Miami on back-to-back days, the amount of performance boats that converge on the charming island town is incredible.

For my speedonthewater.com partner and fellow OSO columnist, Matt Trulio, and I it means it’s our chance to give people as good of an idea as any of what’s going to be taking place in Key West. In one way, we serve as event guides where you can find all kinds of information from what Superboat Extreme-class teams are competing to what new boats are going to be on display in poker run village via our 2016 Key West Coverage list.

In another aspect, we’ve actually become event planners when it comes to Key West as speedonthewater.com has hosted a party each of the last three years. This year OffshoreOnly.com and speedonthewater.com are teaming up for what should be a memorable—and charitable—Key West bash. Anyone is welcome to join the party, which is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 10, from 7 to 10 p.m. at Sandbar Sports Grill. Your first drink is free and there will be food, music and a raffle featuring some pretty cool prizes (more details to follow).
