Formula boats recently took a few team members to the beautiful island of Bimini in the Bahamas for the Model Year 2013 photoshoot season; however, the first go-around wasn’t much to write home about.
The first trip was mid-June and spirits were high. The boats looked beautiful, but a tropical storm moved in, forcing the crew to stop their boating efforts from Miami to Bimini. A “Plan B” was discussed, which involved boating near Key Largo, Florida—they desperately wanted to make the photoshoot work! Everyone loaded back up on the boats and the company van and headed in the direction of Key Largo. Once everyone arrived and checked in very late, they made it to their rooms for some shut-eye. The morning arrived quickly and they were on the docks by 8 a.m., only to be hit with more rain and cloudy skies. It was heartbreaking, but “Plan C” had to be addressed, which was to head home and discuss a new date—so that’s what the crew decided to do!
After regrouping and changing calendars, boats and much more, the crew headed back to Bimini in mid-July. The second trip, we are happy to say, was a complete success! Although the temperatures were extremely muggy and hot each day, it was hard to complain after all the work it took to try again, and, after all, the Formulas were gorgeous and glistening in the Bimini blue water — it really makes one appreciate every moment of each day on and off the water!
