Amelia Island Festival of Speed

March 9-10, 2018

We are thrilled to announce that CRA has been invited to display our vintage and classic race boats during the Amelia Island Festival of Speed. We are working with Joe Sabatini, the proprietor of the Festivals of Speed Events held at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort. Joe hosted our group at his recent event at the Orlando Ritz Carlton at Grande Lakes and he featured our boats on the front lawn and we all had a great time. Now in its third decade, the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance is among the top automotive events in the world. It is a week long festival that includes multiple auctions, a vintage Grand Prix and dozens of other events. Check it out, this is gonna be a fun weekend !!!

Tavares Sunnyland ACBS Boat Show

March 23-25, 2018

The Sunnyland ACBS Boat Show is a major stop on the Florida Vintage Race Boat Circuit and our local CRA members will again be hauling their vintage race boats for display at our CRA booth. We will be handing out CRA decals, posters and signing up new CRA members. This is the biggest and best ACBS boat show in the country with well over 200 antique and classic boats on land display this year because Hurricane Irma destroyed all the docks. But boat rides from the Mount Dora ramp and docks will be plentiful as many of our northern snowbird friends will enjoy their first boat rides of the season in the warm Florida sunshine through the Dora Canal. Don't miss this magnificent event !!!
