Florida Mud Fest – Redneck Yacht Club

Florida Mud Fest – Redneck Yacht Club

2011.location.just-add-dirt.modified.can-am.in-mud.jpgFlorida has more than its share of theme parks but there is only one Redneck Yacht Club and on July 4th weekend Just Add Dirt will bring their mud racing program to the Club.

The Redneck Yacht Club was carved out of former potato fields near Punta Gorda by Dan Kelly who has always been a lover of all things off-road. Dan recognized the need for suitable parks for off-road recreation, and being in the marine contracting business he had the ability and tools to make it happen. Planning and building of the park took a couple years, but once the ground was carved into shape Mother Nature took over and filled it to the brim.

Today the Redneck Yacht Club is 800 acres of watery, muddy fun ready to challenge you and your jeep, ATV, or UTV around specially designed mud courses, trails, and in four specially designed mud holes that have become so notorious they’ve even earned their own name.

Pine Island Sound is the main mud hole. It has 6 islands that serve as the meeting place for vehicles of all sizes but watch out because there are several spots that will suck you in if you’re not paying attention.2011.location.just-add-dirt.modified.can-am-outlander.jpg

The Grouper Hole is located west of Pine Island Sound and is perfect for the smaller vehicles and ATV’s but can challenge larger vehicles as well. Here you’ll find plenty of water and some deep areas that will get you if you’re not watching.

Gator Slough is just over the red bridge and tucked away west of the mud track. There is a combination of hills, trails and definitely mud! This is a great place for those looking for some excitement, but don’t want to get too wet, and by that we mean not above the neck.

Hog Waller is west of the mud track and is a great place to see others and be seen, almost like a swamp going car show.

For those that prefer even more challenge there is a 500’ oval mud track that is sure to get the crowd interested as riders challenge each other around the course. Dive in and show ‘em what you got!2011.location.just-add-dirt.mud-bog.3-atvs-in-mud.jpg

Just Add Dirt and the Redneck Yacht Club have teamed up for a fun filled 4th of July weekend that kicks off on Friday, July 1st. There will be plenty of mud racing action but also fireworks, the sure to be a hit Bikini Bull riding contest, an outdoor concert, great food, and lots of friendly competition among ATVs, UTVS, and trucks. We promise you won’t be bored and it’s bound to be a lot livelier than the Tea Cups ride down the road.
