FLIBS18: Boat show Oasis reopens today

The Oasis Lounge for yacht captains and crew opens today upstairs at the Swimming Hall of Fame Museum.

The air-conditioned space is open only to captains and crew and offers lunch, snacks, seminars, a gaming area and a quiet place to get away from the bustle of the boat show. Captains and crew not working the show are also welcome.

A spa downstairs will offer chair massages, manicures, hair curling and straightening, and shoe shines. Red Bull has sponsored a gaming area with bean bag chairs, consoles and TVs. Chefs can have their knives sharpened by the folks from Culinary Convenience from 2:30-4:30 each afternoon.

Once again organized by Tim Davey of ISS GMT, the Oasis Lounge includes about a dozen sponsors who will have a low-key, soft-sell sort of presence. Title sponsor is Bluewater Yachting, which has created a schedule of free seminars throughout the show (see Page 6 for the full calendar).

The sponsors walked the docks yesterday and Monday, so each yacht should have received an invitation to visit the Oasis. Captains and crew can still register onsite or online here.

The Oasis Lounge will open with the show at 10 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. each day. It will have wi-fi and charging stations for cell phones and other devices.

Access the Oasis near the Windward VIP area. Look for the golf carts that will carry crew to the Oasis. If on foot from the docks, head east toward A1A just east of the pools and look for the sign.

Other sponsors include Peters & May transport company, Bluewater Superyacht Bridge Services, MHG Marine Insurance, Roscioli Yachting Center, Yacht Chandlers, ISS GMT, Medical Support Offshore, IMSA/ARMS, Billfish Boatworks and Isotropic.
