Yachty Hockey takes to the ‘ice’

Yacht crew take to the ‘ice’ for street hockey league every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. for Yachty Hockey at Hyatt Regency Pier 66 in Ft. Lauderdale. A group of up to 20 captains, engineers, deckhands, marina managers and dockhands face-off for a social event and a workout.

“It’s a good group of people who enjoy the fun and exercise,” said Kevin Quirk vice-president of operations at Pier 66.

Goalie Jeremy Beller, of M/Y Enchanted Lady, remembers when the group started three years ago at Bahia Mar Marina. “We wore life jackets because we didn’t have pads.”  

Quirk, who plays goalie also, started with the idea and invited crew. Originally there were only a couple of guys that played in the winter on the concrete tennis courts.

Now the group has gotten larger.

“It is getting more competitive, but it’s not like a rival league,” Beller said. “We pick teams by birthdays or the year you graduated, or some random method. Everybody gets chance to win.”

Find the group on www.Facebook.com at Ft Lauderdale Yachty Hockey.

    Good way to spend leisure time exercising with a good group of folks. Would have loved to see ya’ll with your life jackets as pads, Beller.
