OCEAN REEF CLUB VINTAGE WEEKEND 2013
Ocean Reef Club will be hosting its 19th annual Vintage Weekend—showcasing the world’s finest classic and antique automobiles, aircraft and yachts—on Thurs., December 5 through Sun., December 8, 2013.
A beloved tradition, the event brings together connoisseurs and owners of the most elegant conveyances, converging via Ocean Reef Club’s private airstrip and marina. The festivities include a costume dinner dance, beachfront reception, marina yacht viewing, road rally, and aircraft acrobatic show, all enhanced by the spectacular setting of the Club’s location within 2,500 tropical acres in the Florida Keys.
Although the renowned club is a private member-owned community, non-member guests are invited to experience Ocean Reef Club’s unique way of life during this fabulous long weekend. Non-members can enjoy a chance to attend this event and visit the Club through a three-night, four-day package that includes a stay in the club’s oceanfront Inn.
Recognized as one of the most prestigious classic yacht shows in the country, Vintage Weekend presents the most impressive craft from the industry elite. Elegantly restored Trumpy Yachts and sport fishing yachts from Rybovich & Sons Boat Works are frequent favorites among spectators. Last year’s winners included: The Cigarette, a 1963 25’ Formula powerboat, which was the first standard Formula to be built and raced by the legendary Donald Aronow—and also the restoration of JFK’s famed presidential yacht, the Honey Fitz.
