Steve Whitlock worked as a fishing guide and sportsman, leading him to a rewarding career as a wildlife artist and marine illustrator. This Florida native has over 40 years experience fishing, hunting and exploring the wild places most people never see and this is evident in his winning design for the 2015 Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival T-Shirt.

Presented by Publix, this 52nd annual, three-day festival celebrates the birthplace of the modern shrimping industry, on the first weekend of May each year, in historic Fernandina Beach, Florida.

Born in Tampa and raised in Naples, Whitlock spent his childhood fishing and hunting around the Sunshine State, but Steve didn’t develop an interest in painting until the early 1990s. With encouragement and support from his wife, family & friends, he applied to the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida to become a wildlife artist. He graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts.

Steve’s artwork will be included on official Shrimp Festival T-shirts, tank tops, tote bags and more. Hats, aprons, ornaments and Tervis tumblers are just some of the official Shrimp Festival souvenirs available during the festival.

The Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival will be held May 1 – 3, 2015, with a community Pirate Parade kicking-off the celebrations on Thursday evening, April 30th, at 6:00 PM. Beginning Friday morning you can enjoy a sidewalk sale presented by the merchants in downtown Fernandina Beach. The Festival officially opens with live music by DRB beginning at 5:30 on the waterfront stage. The newly expanded Kids Fun Zone will premier in its Central Park location Friday evening, and all of the food, sponsors, and exhibitor’s booths located at the waterfront will be open until 10:00 pm. Entertainment Friday evening includes live music, the Miss Shrimp Festival Pageant, and a Pirate Invasion followed by a fantastic fireworks show at 9:45 pm.

Saturday the fun starts early, at 9:00 AM, when the art show opens with nearly 400 artisans competing for over $7,500 in cash awards. The Festival is open until 6:00 pm, so you will have plenty of time to see fine arts and crafts, antique dealers, participate in contests throughout the festival for kids of all ages, see live musical entertainment, including The Edgar Winters Band at 4:30, interact with scores of playful pirates, and visit the Kids Fun Zone with activities, games and food. Best of all, admission is FREE!

Sunday, the festival’s Fun Zone, arts, crafts and antique booths remain open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm with the addition of the Best Decorated Boat Parade, a Wreath Ceremony, and the Blessing of the Shrimp Fleet at the waterfront.

RM Sotheby’s Auction Breaks $60 Million at Amelia Island

RM Southeby's Auction Breaks $60 Million at Amelia IslandAmelia Island, FL – RM Sotheby’s, the official auction house of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, is delighted to announce spectacular results for its 17th annual Amelia Island sale. The auction, which represented the first RM Sotheby’s event since RM Auctions and Sotheby’s formed a strategic partnership in February, achieved total sales of $60,360,050, besting the company’s record 2014 Amelia Island performance by 67 percent.

This result represents not only the highest total ever for a sale held during the Amelia Island week, but also exceeds the combined total of all other auctions this week, reaffirming RM Sotheby’s clear market leadership. The incredible 98 percent sell-through rate, which includes 13 individual million-dollar-plus results, is a testament to RM’s reputation for offering best-of-category automobiles.

Taking top sale honors of the day and of the entire Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance week was the 1960 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB Cabriolet, chassis no. 1945 SA, achieving a very strong $6,380,000 to comfortably set a new world record for the model at auction. Significantly, proceeds from car’s sale will benefit the consignor’s charity for the education of children.

“We were thrilled to present as significant a car as the 400 Superamerica here at Amelia Island”, said Gord Duff, Car Specialist, RM Sotheby’s. “Both the importance of the car and the success of RM Sotheby’s international team in uniting collectors with the world’s finest automobiles is reflected in its result. The outstanding sale total is a sign of the ever-expanding market for blue-chip collector cars, with bidders hailing from no fewer than 22 countries, of which 22 percent were new to RM Sotheby’s.”

Providing further proof of Ferrari’s domination at the top of the market, additional lots garnering strong prices included the genuine 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider, realizing $3,300,000; a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4, bringing a record $495,000, and the time warp 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta, dubbed “the Condo Find”, achieving a fantastic $770,000.

Some of the most electric moments of the auction were brought about by the record sales of late model and emerging collectibles. Notable highlights included the exceedingly rare, six-speed manual 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB, which nearly tripled its pre-sale estimate at $682,000, smashing the previous auction record for the model. A pair of Ferrari 512 models also exceeded expectations, with the 1995 F512 M selling for $462,000 and the 1980 512 BB garnering $418,000.

Ferrari wasn’t the only high performing marque of the sale, with prices for fantastic Porsche 911s continuing to rise. Amongst numerous examples, a 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Touring sold for $891,000, a 1988 911 Turbo ‘Slant Nose’ Cabriolet for $363,000, and a 1979 911 Turbo brought $253,000. Japanese collectibles also continue to make waves in the collector car market, with the much-talked-about 1970 Nissan Fairlady Z 432 surpassing its estimate to bring a record-breaking $253,000.

The “Rocket” to Debut March 14 at Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance

The "Rocket" to Debut March 14 at Amelia Island Concours d'EleganceLos AngelesGalpin Auto Sports (GAS) and Henrik Fisker announced today the start of low-volume production on the 725hp coach-built super Mustang dubbed “The Rocket,” which was first unveiled as a prototype last November during the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. The first production model will make its world debut at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, March 14, where a select number of media will also have the opportunity to drive it.

Production of the car by Galpin and Henrik Fisker represents the commitment to build a limited number of vehicles to sell to collectors and automotive enthusiasts alike after the car received a positive reception in Los Angeles last year.

“The response has been overwhelmingly positive from all over the world – you can’t get better feedback than that two months after debuting a car you helped build,” said Beau Boeckmann, President of Galpin Motors. “I’m so proud of Henrik’s amazing design, and the team at Galpin Auto Sports for the detailed performance work. Amelia Island is the perfect venue for this debut as it draws an eclectic group of passionate automotive enthusiasts from around the world into one picturesque central location that celebrates the automobile.”

The Rocket’s design, penned by Henrik Fisker, is unmistakably inspired by specialty pony cars of the 1960s and early 1970s including the 1968 Shelby GT500. While its design borrows cues from yesteryear, the materials used to produce it are as state-of-the-art as any modern exotic supercar. Constructed from ultra-strong and lightweight carbon fiber, Galpin and Henrik Fisker worked with GFMI Metalcrafters Inc., of Fountain Valley, Calif., to bring the design to life.

Since the car debuted in November of 2014, Galpin and Fisker have set to work to realize the commitment they made to bring this car to market. In just four and half short months, the team has worked with GFMI to finalize the molds for the production carbon fiber body panels and developed a number of new standard and optional performance and appearance upgrades.

black-rocket-frontFollowing its international debut in prototype form at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, Galpin Auto Sports and Henrik Fisker will show the first production Rocket at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in Florida.

Some exterior colors available include “Eminence Grise”-the paint color shown on the original Rocket prototype – Black, Ingot Silver and Magnetic (grey), Oxford White, Race Red, Deep Impact Blue and Competition Orange, but any interior and exterior color combination can be ordered at the customer’s taste. Other exterior options include an exposed carbon fiber hood stripe, mirror covers and lower front fascia.

Another option is the Rocket Interior Package with hand-finished Italian leather upholstery seats, dash board, center console, door panels and rear interior deck panel, as well as suede-lined A, B and C pillars, headliner and interior panels. Galpin also offers a custom-tuned premium audio system, featuring JL Audio amplifier, component speakers and an 8-inch subwoofer housed in a custom fiberglass speaker enclosure.

As standard, the Rocket is fitted with Ford’s optional Mustang performance package which from the factory includes fitment of a larger radiator with oil cooler; unique chassis tuning; gauge pack (oil pressure and vacuum); unique stability control, EPAS and ABS tuning; a 3.73 ratio TORSEN(r) rear differential and Brembo(tm) 6-piston front brake calipers with larger rotors.

The first production Rocket (black) will be unveiled at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, accompanied by the prototype (Eminence Grise) on Saturday, March 14 at the Amelia Island Ritz Carlton Golf Club Patio.

As an additional extra cost option, Galpin and Henrik Fisker are also offering a more extreme ultra-high performance Gran Turismo brake package from Brembo; featuring oversized 15-inch front and rear two-piece drilled rotors clamped by 6-piston calipers for superior stopping power.

New for production, a Bassani cat-back exhaust system with quad tips now comes standard as well; ensuring the outside of the car sounds as good as the inside. Two new additional wheel options have also been created. A 10-spoke 21-inch wheel was designed and built in conjunction with ADV1 and a special, track-oriented super-light 20-inch wheel and tire combo were also developed for owners wishing to reduce unsprung weight and improve the handling of their vehicle at the race track.

The Rocket, equipped with carbon fiber coach work, performance package and a Bassani exhaust, is available at a starting price of $109,100 USD, while models equipped with the supercharged performance package start at $125,000.

Interested buyers will have the ability to option the car to their personal tastes and can purchase directly through Galpin Ford and possibly through one of several hand-picked dealers across the country and around the world.

Sotheby’s First RM Auction Sale Takes Place March 14, 2015 on Amelia Island

Sotheby's First RM Auction Sale Takes Place March 14, 2015 on Amelia IslandNew York – Sotheby’s and RM Auctions are pleased to announce the formation of a new strategic partnership as Sotheby’s acquires a 25 percent ownership interest in the world’s foremost collector car auctioneer, which will now be known as RM Sotheby’s.

This long-term investment comes as the more than $2 billion market for the finest automobiles continues to grow, presenting increasing opportunities for both companies. Sotheby’s and RM have previously collaborated on a number of successful sales in both the United States and Europe, most notably the November 2013 Art of the Automobile auction in New York, which achieved nearly $63 million in just two hours and saw a new auction record set for a Ferrari 250 LM at $14.3 million.

The announcement grows those previous partnerships and unites the two businesses for the full calendar of future automobile auctions. The first RM Sotheby’s sale will take place in Amelia Island, Florida, March 14, with additional auctions in Fort Worth, Texas, Lake Como, Italy, Monterey, California, London, England and New York among others scheduled for later this year.

“Sotheby’s is thrilled to join the clear market leader in this field,” commented Bill Ruprecht, Sotheby’s President, Chairman, and CEO. “RM has established a formidable position that will only be strengthened by this new phase in our relationship. Just last year, RM set a new benchmark for a collector car auction with their flagship Monterey sale totaling more than $140 million, eclipsing the previous record they had established in 2013. The incredible synergy between our businesses, including significant overlap of top collectors and a focus on new markets, will be further strengthened as we work together to expand the classic car collector base. RM’s ownership of the high end of the market coupled with our global client network positions us for great success at a time when the market for investment-quality motor cars has never been stronger.”

Rob Myers, Chairman and Founder, RM Auctions added, “The partnership that has been formed between RM Auctions and Sotheby’s is undoubtedly the most effective way for us to reach the ever-growing worldwide audience of collectors who take a keen interest in the collector car asset class. No other organization in the world has a client base as far-reaching as Sotheby’s and since we have worked so closely and successfully with them in the past, it makes perfect sense that we form a strategic partnership that creates a truly worldwide platform for collector cars. It’s an exciting time in our company history, and for the hobby at large.”

Initially Sotheby’s will have a 25 percent ownership position in RM, governance participation and a comprehensive partnership agreement to work together to drive growth in the business. Over time, Sotheby’s will have opportunities to increase the ownership stake as the partnership evolves and grows.

2015 Amelia Island Automotive Week Details

2015 Amelia Island Automotive Week DetailsThe Passport Transport Eight Flags Road Tour

As The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance approaches, many people have inquired about the upcoming Eight Flags Road Tour, sponsored by Passport Transport.

This annual event will take place on Friday morning; March 13, 2015, with participating cars beginning in at the Ritz Carlton and the Amelia Island Golf Club. This year over 60 spectacular cars are participating in this “Rally” style tour.

Once underway, this unique driving experience will take the Concours registered vehicles through one of the most beautiful, environmentally pristine and historically significant coastal areas in all of Florida, including Amelia Island. They will have an escort of officers from the Florida Highway Patrol and the Nassau County Sheriff’s Department.

The day will wrap up with a public display of the cars on Centre Street from Front to 5th Streets, and 2nd Street to Ash. Please be aware that a portion of these streets will be closed to traffic during this time. This allows the public to safely view the cars at no cost, while the car owners enjoy a luncheon provided by 23 area restaurants, for this charitable event. Lunch is served by Micah’s Place staff and volunteers.

All streets will reopen following the event at 2:00PM.

The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance
Businessman and car collector Bill Warner, a photographer and writer for Road & Track magazine since 1971, founded the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in 1996 at the urging of Florida auto enthusiasts who wanted a classic car show in Florida like the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. Warner selected Community Hospice of Northeast Florida, which had provided service to his parents as well as his wife, as the primary beneficiary of the event. The first event was held April 6, 1996 at Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island. The first year there were 163 cars and attendance was around 2,200 vs. 2014 when attendance increased to more than 29,000 people.

Entrants submit an application for each car, and the Concours field is selected from each year’s pool of applicants. Many of the competing cars are valued in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, with some worth millions. For this reason, along with its setting and amenities, the Amelia Island Concours is considered one of the premier Concours in the world.

In 2014 The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation topped $2.5 million in charitable giving by donating record amounts to the Community Hospice of Nassau County, the Nassau County Sheriffs, and Fernandina Beach Police Departments, Shop with Cops Christmas programs, and Micah’s Place Domestic Violence Center – A shelter for the victims of domestic abuse and their children.

Baptist Medical Center Nassau opened a new Community Hospice inpatient care center on the first floor of its new medical office building. The Community Hospice Jane and Bill Warner Center for Caring is providing acute end-of-life care in a home-like setting.

The center is named in honor of Jane and Bill Warner in recognition of the remarkable legacy and support they will continue to leave on Nassau County.

Other area recipients include Spina Bifida of Jacksonville, and The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.

The Micah’s Place Connection with Bonhams
March 10, 11, 12, 2015

When Bonhams ran into challenges trying to find an area location for its first annual Amelia Automotive Auction, during Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Week, it was suggested that, as Island Liaison and island resident of over 22 years, Marianna McIntyre might be able to help.

Working together with Ed Boner, Mayor of Fernandina Beach, The City Commissioners, and the City manager, they were able to find an appropriate location.

Not only is it wonderful to have Bonhams in Nassau County, but they have very kindly made Micah’s Place its nonprofit of choice. They are benefitting the victims of Domestic Violence in several ways including donating a Lot of fine items to be auctioned off in support of the Micah’s Place mission. Micah’s Place will also assist Bonhams by offering a local information table during the event, directing visitors to local business and restaurants.

automobile-week-2015-amelia-islandBonhams Auction House
Bonhams is a privately owned British auction house and one of the world’s oldest and largest auctioneers of fine art and antiques. Since its establishment in 1793, it has been amongst the most respected and trusted brands in the industry.

The Bonhams name is recognized worldwide throughout all sectors of the fine art, antiques and collectors market, with several of its departments established world leaders within their specialist category. In motoring, Bonhams continues to be unrivaled as the European number one auction house, achieving world record prices for Mercedes, Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Aston Martin – as is evidence by the sale in August 2014 of a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta, which became the most valuable car in history to be sold at auction for $38,115,000.

In 2013 alone, Bonhams achieved $24.88 million in net income.

With specialists in every major area of art and collectables, the depth of collective knowledge of Bonhams auctioneers has enabled the company to challenge the market positions of Sotheby’s and Christie’s.

Amelia Island’s Rendezvous Festival Partners with Eurochannel

Amelia Island's Rendezvous Festival Partners with EurochannelRendezvous Festival and Eurochannel have entered a partnership initiating worldwide exposure to this nine-day movie, music, and gaming event being held all over Amelia Island in June 2015. Featuring movie screenings, talks, concerts, expositions, tributes and parties, the Rendezvous Festival is named after a music club on Amelia Island’s American Beach that once hosted famed musicians such as Louis Armstrong, James Brown, Billie Daniels, and Ray Charles in the 1930’s, 40’s, and 50’s.

Their branch into music permits viewers to find legends like U2 and Phil Collins performing alongside the hottest upcoming musical acts like Davie Guetta and Enrique Iglesias. Eurochannel brings viewers into the most important film festivals in Europe, and now Amelia Island, where the latest in independent films and music are being positioned to take the world by storm this June.

One highlight of the Rendezvous Festival takes place June 11th when Country Music Association recording artist the Shane Wooten Band takes the stage for a high energy, outdoor concert at Main Beach in Fernandina. Shane, from Ocala, Florida, is a CMA up and coming artist to watch in 2015. “Shane Wooten caught our attention with the numerous accomplishments he has gained so far in his career,” said Integrity Music Management President David Adkins.

The goal of the festival is to inspire the creativity and imagination of new and experienced filmmakers, gamers, and musicians by showcasing the talent of industry professionals.

The Rendezvous Festival takes place June 5th – 13th and is all about entertainment by bringing artists and the community together for an amazing event.
