February 28 th marks the founding anniversary of Ye Mystic Krewe of the Santa Margarita. On this day we celebrate 16 years of fine sailing and comradery in the Tampa Bay area.
Thus far, we have had a good steady sailing Krewe and ever increasing membership. Our standard length of tenure is well over the 4 year mark which says a lot for our Krewe in that we seem to want to stay and celebrate together while bringing on the new. Well done.
We have honored 6 Admirals thus far, a good host of commodores, numerous parade captains, ambassadors, pursers, musicians, a couple of ship’s captains, security teams and others. We have also lost a few close Krewe mates as well and they should be remembered too for they too helped in all ways to bring us to this day.
So, I again say, well done Krewe! And to that….
Hazza to our Founders for you are what made it come about, Hazza to all Krewe and to all that are Krewe, you are what makes this all work and Hazza to the real Krewe of the Santa Margarita, the Rosario and all others that lost their lives so many years ago but gave us the foundation to remember and honor them and this we say true, so say we all.
