April – May 2017
Each year, the winner of the FL Sunfish State Championship has the “honor” of hosting the following year’s regatta. Jeff Linton won the 2016 Championship so DIYC proudly hosts the 2017 regatta. This event is open to all Sunfish sailors. Expect a fun, friendly yet competitive regatta!

A brand-new event for DIYC – race ‘round Gadsden Point to the entrance of Old Tampa Bay. Start with the towers of Tampa over your transom, slip past the MacDill security patrols and finish with the “skyscrapers” of St Pete behind you. After the race, you can run home to let the dog out or grab dinner at Hula Bay and reserve a slip for the night at the Westshore Yacht Club Marina.
The J24 Rodeo is being held on Saturday and Sunday (May 6 and 7). With a late start on Saturday and an early finish on Sunday, the event promises to pack high-protein racing with a great opportunity to enjoy the weekend (and of course, DIYC’s famous hospitality).
