Spring Break '06 Pensacola, FL

Spring break 06' was an awesome trip to Pensacola Florida. Trey (a college sailing buddy of mine) and I drove down on Sat March 11th to the home of Kirk Newkirk. Newkirk is a famous name all around the south east in the catamaran sailing world and him and his wife offered to let us stay in their basement for the week. Thanks! Kirk also owns and manages Key Sailing, a sailboat and jetski rental shop just off the bridge on Quietwater Beach road. http://keysailing.com/. Mon. morning we set up the Inter 20 (20 foot beach catamaran seen in the picture) on the beach at Key Sailing and had lunch at Surf Burger, a burger shop just above key sailing's shop. mmmm surf burgers good. We went out sailing on mon. and relaxed as much as possible.
Later that week we sailed from Pensacola to Panama City. It took us 9hours and we covered about 90 miles. What an adventure!
