Once again, Tradewinds Radio was pleased to be a sponsor of the Cruising Outpost Cruisers Party at the Strictly Sail Miami Boat Show. This was the 19th year of Latitudes and Attitudes and Cruising Outpost party’s thanking cruisers for their loyalty and patronage. Several dozen active live-aboard cruisers attended, plus several hundred ‘leaving soon’ cruisers buying very cool marine equipment and toys at the show. As usual the Cruising Outpost booth was mobbed with show visitors wanting the famous pirate gear (arrggghhh!) and to say hello to Bob Bitchin. Sponsors supplied free beer and pizza that kept the party crowd warm on a typical cool Miami winter night. The cruisers’ favorite, Eric Stone Band entertained the mob with cruising tunes, trop-rock originals, and rock and roll. The charity raffle raised money for a new tall-ship being built in California as a youth training vessel.
