If there is one event that should be on everyone's Boating Bucket List, it is the Bahamas Poker Run. For twenty-one years, this continues to be one of FPC's Signature excursions, visiting the pristine beaches, crystal clear waters and unspoiled Islands of the Bahamas. It doesn't get any better than this and with less than three weeks to departure, and we're down to the last call! Please try to get on board for this fabulous event which will be covered extensively for boating magazines and the Powerboating in Paradise TV Series. SJ

21st Annual BAHAMAS POKER RUN
June 21-24, 2012 Presented by Bimini Bay Resort & Marina
All boats are welcome on our Bahamas Poker Run to Bimini! Bring your powerboat, center console, cruiser or yacht! The dockage and accommodations at Bimini Bay Resort& Marina are first class and we have an action-packed agenda for our four day adventure!
It's just 60 short miles from Fort Lauderdale, and our early summer dates make this the best weather for crossing the gulfstream! This year's event features a golf-cart scavenger hunt through the small villages of Porgy Town, Bailey Town and Alice Town.

We would like to thank everyone who came out and supported this event! We are happy to report that our participants helped us raise: $5,000 for Camp Amigo Kids!
