A WFPHRF Boat Of The Year Event

A Davis Island Yacht Club Boat Of The Year Event

Davis Island Yacht Club Tampa, Florida January 13-14, 2018


You are invited to participate, and we think you will like what we have planned!

We are doing some things differently:

We believe you shouldn’t have to leave home before dawn to go sailing, so the starting times are more civilized.

We will not require you to attend a skippers meeting on Friday evening, as the Sailing Instructions will be available online at least a week ahead.

We have Race Officers on both courses, and they have pledged to coordinate so that most boats arrive back at DIYC after racing within a reasonable time window.

Saturday dinner will be served no more than 90 minutes after most boats dock. You will not have to wait until some later, fixed time! It is priced low enough to make it easy for your team to stay and eat. Live music will enhance the party.

Dinner menu: Cuban Chef Table – 1905 Salad, Cuban Bread & Butter, Spanish Yellow Rice,

Black Beans, Ham Hock, Red Onions, Pulled Mojo Pork, Ropa Vieja and Tres Leches Cake.

We have some special treats planned for your crew when you arrive back at the dock.

Docking at DIYC is free. You are welcome to bring tents, RVs (with a reservation), campers, or to sleep on your boat. The pool house restrooms and hot showers will be open to all.

2018 Flying Scot District Regatta @ DIYC
Jan 20 – Jan 21 all-day

This weekend Davis Island YC will host Flying Scot teams from around Florida and the Southeast. The Flying Scot is a 19-foot trailerable sloop typically sailed by two. The event, which sails Saturday and Sunday, is expected to draw 20 or so boats.

You’ll see the trailers tucked in near the hoist, and the racing should take place within easy watching distance of the porch. Thanks for making this small fleet feel welcome!

DIYC – Around the Point Race
Feb 3 all-day

Around the Point Race

February 3rd, 2018

In its second year, the Around The Point Race loosely follows our DIYC series formula of starting and finishing at DIYC. The unique element of this race is that it finishes on the “other” side of our peninsula at West Shore Yacht Club. Although not a Council club, West Shore offers beautiful dockage and amenities with a deep water approach. Just minutes away from South Tampa, after the poolside awards celebration and party, sailors have the choice of heading home or staying on the boat for the night.
