DIYC Hillsborough Bay Race
Feb 25 all-day

“Come Hell or high water” was the phrase used by our first regatta chair, Brian Malone.  This distance race is held in Hillsborough Bay, but don’t assume it is just an afternoon cruise.  Test your navigation skills and plan to race even if the weather pipes up.  This time of year is prone to fronts.  In the internet age, most race decisions are made at the bar watching radar.  You can plan to race this one and hone your heavy weather skills, so don’t shy away if there is a blow.

Hospice Cup – Registration @ Davis Islands Yacht Club

Hospice Cup-logo-1

Similar to the traditions of the Morgan Invasion, the Tampa Bay Hospice Cup appeals to both cruisers and racers. With a strong focus on informal sailing and camaraderie, the event caters to cruising enthusiasts that just want to come out and be part of a fun. In addition to the traditional Morgan Invasion fleets, the regatta also features open non-Morgan fleets for PHRF, Multi-hulls, and a “Just-for-Fun” casual fleet. The committee also plans landside activities for supporters who’d like to be a part of the event but who don’t care to race.

DIYC Tampa to Ft. Myers @ Davis Island Yacht Club
May 26 – May 27 all-day

The race’s history dates back to 1946. 2015′s race was held for the first time over Memorial Day weekend. A resurgence of this race had 20 competitors so let’s get 30 boats for 2017.  This 100 mile coastal race has everything from a J-24 to 40′+ footers on the course.  We anticipate adding multi-hulls in ’16 and continue to grow momentum.  Of course, the destination is fabulous finishing at Ft Myers Beach – one of the remaining “old Florida” beach towns.  ALL competitors compete for the Navigator’s Trophy donated by OH Rogers.  It is awarded to the first boat to finish in any class.

Regatta Chairs: Brent Bacon & Kelly Ferro
