Enjoy the excitement aboard Schooner America 2.0 under the sunny sky of Key West as you race for victory! The boat that gets there first, \"wins\"! Then relax and sail back to the dock where there is an award ceremony at the Schooner Wharf Bar for the first, second, and third place winners. Highlights along the way: Complimentary Beer, Wine, Champagne and Soft Drinks The famed Sand Key Reef, Mallory Square, and Sunset Pier. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife: dolphins, sea turtles, and waterbirds. A waterside view of Fort Zachary Taylor. A gourmet box lunch from a local Key West Cafe!
