"The principal purpose of the Club shall be to promote sailing in all its forms, to form a social nucleus with activities for people primarily interested in sailing, to develop and maintain active relationships with other sailing organizations, to promote racing and cruising for pure enjoyment, to promote safety on the water-ways, and to foster a spirit of good fellowship and helpfulness."

Labor Day Night Race - 29 Aug
August 29th is the DIYC Labor Day Night Race. We will be racing in upper Hillsborough Bay. Although we had planned to race to Ruskin, there is not enough depth in the channel leading to Little Harbor. Hillsborough Bay actually helps to accomplish a request we had from our B Fleet - more mark roundings and less long-legged distance. We don't go farther south than the Alafia River entrance, so it is all close to home. And no logistics since we are finishing at the club. So, we are really just racing a 14 mile Thursday night race. X mark will be set on Bayshore and we will round the west side of Long Shoal just to make it interesting. The course is basically 2 triangles, so hopefully it will even appeal to our one-design purists!?! How 'bout it J-24 and Melges racers? Of course, we will have music and free beer after racing Friday night. The awards ceremony will be Saturday at noon in the Regatta Bar. Click here for NOR/SIs, Sign Up and Entry List
