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.
