The Davis Island Yacht Club is a private, member-owned yacht club situated at the south end of Davis Islands in Tampa, Florida. The club sponsors a heavy schedule of sailing races, an active cruising fleet and a strong youth sailing organization.

"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."

Cruise to Jackson's / Convention Center - 4 Oct

Join the Cruising Club for its annual trip to the Tampa Convention Center and dinner at Jackson's Bistro on Harbor Island. This is a very casual - "let's get together" - first cruise club event. We will meet at the convention center. Just pull into any slip and tie up. Then head for the Sail Pavillion at the convention center for a pre-dinner drink. If the weather is bad, you can just drive over. Or, just meet us at Jackson's for dinner. This is a great opportunity for everyone to catch up after the summer, and for new cruisers to meet the group.
