Main Street is holding a Ship Off Parade for the Foar From Home guys and their boat, Courageous. 

The Foar from Home team consist of four US Veterans (Army/Navy/Air Force/Marine) from Fernandina Beach, who will row across the Atlantic to help end Veteran suicide. The boat will be shipped overseas at the beginning of September where the crew will cast off from the shore of La Gomera in the Canary Islands, Spain, and row unsupported across 3,000 miles of the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua. The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge will be the ultimate journey of their lives.

Located just off the coast of northeast Florida, Amelia Island is easy to reach, but hard to forget. With 13 miles of beautiful beaches, abundant native wildlife, and pristine waters, this barrier island has long been a beloved destination for visitors and residents alike.
