INTERESTED IN BECOMING A MEMBER?
Our Bylaws State:
"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."
If you feel the same about sailing and are interested in becoming a member of Davis Island Yacht Club, we invite you to come and meet us.
There are 2 main requirements to initiate the membership process:
If you are active in the sailing community and already know one of our members, congratulations, you are well on your way. Just talk to the member that you know.
However, if you aren't yet familiar with the sailing community and don't know a member, we believe you should give sailing a try! You may attend any of our many regattas and open events. This gives you a chance to meet our membership and experience the sailing culture and community.
Our open events are listed on the calendar tab of our website and include the popular Thursday night racing series. The Thursday night races are open to the public and are an excellent way to meet our membership and enjoy sailing.
If you have never been to DIYC and want to experience sailing, please come out on Thursday night, go up to the bar and request to be put on a boat. The DIYC employee will announce "Crew looking for boat." Our members LOVE new crew of all levels.
Whether you've sheeted lines in a major regatta in Annapolis, or just looked on from the shore as a boat heads out on a leisurely cruise, we almost always find a spot for you on a boat.
If you just want to check out the atmosphere before committing to sailing, come out and enjoy our food and beverages on the deck while getting the best view of Tampa Bay. After a year of enjoying our facilities and events as a guest, you'll find that you have no problem finding a sponsor.
