Navarre Beach Yacht Club Spectre Island Shrimp Boil

Well over 20 boats turned out for this years NBYC Spectre Island Shrimp Boil.

Unofficial Ft Walton Regal Gathering

Today was the annual Navarre Beach Yacht Club Spectre Island Shrimp Boil. This event always draws a big crowd and we likely had the single largest “gathering” of Regal boats in our area today.

We arrived 1st yesterday evening with our Regal 2760 followed shortly thereafter by Larry and Violet in their nice 3560. Saturday morning saw the arrival of Roger and Teri in their recently aquired 2860 and finaly Greg in his 3860. All told, not a bad showing of Regals amongst the crowd of hungry boaters.
