October â€“ November 2014
This new event for DIYC encourages participation from veteran racers to casual cruisers looking to check out the racing scene. Â There are classes for everyone with choices in spinnaker vs. non-spinnaker, full crew or double-handed, and distance vs. buoys. Â By popular request, this is a one day event. Â Racing is scheduled in the afternoon, so your morning is free for lifeâ€™s other obligations. Â After an afternoon of racing, DIYC will host a post-race â€śHalloweenâ€ť party for all participants and guests.

The Davis Island Egmont Key regatta is both a DIYC and Suncoast BOTY event. Â This distance race is one of the longest running races in Tampa Bay racing history. Â This year offers a long and short course. Â The long course will go â€śaroundâ€ť Egmont key, once again qualifying the race for the prestigious Wall perpetual trophy. Â All racers can look forward to the traditional DIYC Chili Cookoff event at the club to finish off the race.
