Southport Winterfest Flotilla Information

Saturday evening, December 11, 2021
Line up begins at 6:40 pm | Parade at 7:00 pm

The flotilla participants will form up on Saturday, December 11th, on, or before, 1840 hours (6:40 PM) on the Intra-costal Waterway (ICW) near the entrance of the Old Yacht Basin (Provision Company/Old American Fish Bar) facing upriver.  The start time for the flotilla will be at 1900 hours (7:00 PM). The upriver parade route will be from American Fish, going upriver past the Waterfront Park and the City Pier, to about a half-mile past Kingsley Park to Marker 19.

The parade route will then circle back toward Southport (downriver), staying more mid-channel due to water depth, and then proceeding past American Fish. If you wish to depart the Southport City portion of the parade, please do so then. The remaining flotilla participants will then proceed down the ICW (Westbound) to the mid-way bridge, before turning around and heading back towards Southport and/or the vessel’s slip, transient dockage, or anchorage for the night.

All vessels should be monitoring VHF radio Channel 78 for all directions and information
