The 26th Annual Memorial Day tradition of Schooner Wharf Bar’s Minimal Regatta captivated thousands of spectators along the Key West Harbor Walk as 18 energetic and determined competing teams enjoyed the holiday high jinks.
The event is a reflection of the colorful and unique spirit of Key West and its people -- fun-filled, creative and just a bit different from the rest!
Congratulations to Dale Crouse paddling Giddy Up in the Open Design and to Brian Plate, captain of Sweet Child in the Kayak/Canoe Design for their 1st Place finishes. Earning the Most Creative Design was Sneak Box by Maryann Michol and Chris Hibberd. Kara Wedel’s Wisteria Islander won Best Paint Job. The team effort of Wolfie triumphed in the Best Costume category and the dubious honor of the Best Sinker went to Capt. Sean Blaise’s Mini Moonshine entry.
