Southport Winterfest Flotilla Information

Saturday evening, December 10, 2022
Lineup begins at 6:40 pm | Parade at 7:00 pm

The flotilla participants will form up on Saturday, December 10th, 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. A mark boat will be in the general vicinity of Marker 19 to define the turning point. It will have a white strobe light to identify it. The parade route will then circle back toward Waterfront Park and Old Yacht Basin staying more mid-channel to not interfere with vessels still passing the judging area.

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