On January 27th, Joel and Sherry Fitzgarrald and John Kernan led 33 Members of the Marco Bay Yacht Club on a truly unique experience as they were introduced to The Isles of Capri. Among the highlights and “secrets” they discovered:
The Isles of Capri were developed by “Doc” Loach starting in 1955 by connecting 3 existing islands with fill (one island remains connected to the mainland by a bridge). While tracing the route of the Capri boat parade, our flotilla saw what appeared to be a waterfront McDonalds, Venice style canals, and scores of lovely waterfront homes. The Marco Bay Yacht Club boaters now know how to reach all four of the Isles restaurants by water.
Many of the Members, including a few guests and several newer members, went on an escorted tour by Frank Mulligan, who showed them the inside route to Naples. Following the tour, the group split up with some going to waterside restaurants and other stopping at various locations where they enjoyed their packed lunches.
Social distance was maintained the entire time, and the reviews from the participants were outstanding!
