I was there last year, to be honest I didn't know about it until I went to Ken Thompson Park (in sarasota) to launch my TI and go sailing. There were a gizzilian WETA'a and Windriders (literally a gazillion). I was the only AI/TI out there that day that I saw, and really felt out numbered.
Did meet and talk to a lot of really nice people though. I will be going out there again this year, too bad they don't have anything for Hobie Adventures, I think there are quadruple the number of Hobie adventures in the area ( about 75 I have been told (unofficially)), thats more than all the Windriders and Weta's combined. After all the Hobie adventure AI/TI are multi-hull Tri's.

My TI seems to holds it's own with the Windriders, and the Weta's (comparable), if there is no wind this year I will be pedal sailing past them all smiling, might even offer to tow some back in ( for a fee (beer) LOL).

if you can get a group of adventures then you could probably get a fleet in the windriders or weta group

How did it go? Did you participate? I was out that day with some guests from Germany. We sailed down to Lido and had a picnic. We saw lots of Wetas near Bird Key and some bigger boats up north.

Talk to the folks at SSS and convince them to open up an Island fleet for next year.
