anyone sail off of St. Augustine Beach, FL? cool beach, they let everyone drive their vehicles right on the beach and from where you park it is only 50 yards to the water, straight shot over the sand. Just curious if they allow you to pull a trailer with hobie onto the beach. I'm guessing a set of beach wheels would be a must here. The state park website says "no launching of motorized boats from beach" so i'm guessing you could launch a sailboat? any info on location/regulations/conditions would be great!

Im not sure, I just moved beachside in St. Augustine for college and am hunting for a Hobie 16 to purchase to sail beachside here.

I know you can put in down near the GTMNERR then you would have to work your way back down.

Let me know if you found anything. Ill keep you posted as well.

That is Vilano Beach. It is one of the only remaining Hobie friendly beaches on the east coast of Florida.

It would be a great place for the Mid-Winters except there is no local fleet to do the organizing!

I don't think you can leave a boat or trailer overnight. The beach patrol is very friendly and there is a fresh water shower by the pavillion near the entrance.

Where on St. Augustine Beach was the Midwinters East back in 1983 or 4? It was in Front of a Holiday Inn that had a Friday afternoon special of $.10 shrimp and oysters. We set up next to Bob Curry and some dudes from Tennessee. The Tennessee boys they said that they quit drinking beer on the boat. Instead, they'd take hit from a bottle of Jack Daniel's and get real aggressive on the starting line.
