Welcome to the Sunnyland Chapter of the ACBS

The 2021 Boat Festival and St. Johns River Cruise have been CANCELLED

It’s with mixed emotions that I inform you that we have cancelled the Sunnyland Antique Boat Festival and St. Johns River Cruise for 2021. The Christmas Party we planned for December 15th has also been cancelled. Last night The Sunnyland Chapter convened a special meeting to discuss all the parameters of the event. The decision to cancel was based on the rise of COVID-19 and the gathering of large crowds. We wanted to make the decision before we opened registration.

As most of you know, the new Marina is scheduled for completion this summer and we will plan a Sunnyland Event when the City has the “Grand Opening”—–A tentative plan is being formulated and we will keep everyone advised so you can participate.

We will keep the Boat Show Committee in place and we will have a major grand opening show in 2022. I really appreciate everyone’s support and what you have done to make our show what it is. Hopefully we can all come together and make 2022 a Historical Event. My best wishes to all of you and your families and I wish you all a Merry Christmas.
