Many Woody Boaters go down the week before to Lake Dora for an entire week of fun. There is fun stuff for weeks in advance. For the slow pokes, there is the St Johns River Cruise. And for the more hyper type. Races! Vintage boat races that are just as insane as they have always been.
The guys take it seriously and give a fantastic show on the lake. Trust us, you get a full dose of fossil fuel burning, and air/noise pollution. It’s fantastic. You can just stand there are suck in summers of your past. Its all there. Except everyone is a little slower and older. Just don’t look in the mirror and all will be well.
If you need more coaxing, here is a a video done a bit back on the subject of Vintage Boat Racing!
