Dore Drake Regatta 2018

The Dore Drake Regatta grew from the long running DIYC Bikini Cup. Long time members may remember John Condrick who was known for having an all-female crew, teaching them sailing and racing. In 1978, John Condrick donated what became our perpetual trophy and the race was renamed to the Dore Drake after his wife. So ladies, NOW is your chance to participate! This special regatta provides an opportunity for woman to compete against each other in a day of camaraderie, sport and competition. We have planned 4 divisions (Keelboat Spinnaker and Non-spinnaker, Keelboat Coach on board (one male passenger), and a dinghy class.) After the race, we plan a trophy celebration and a potluck provided by the men of DIYC.  Please consider bringing a dish to share.

Halloween Flyer 2018

If you missed it last year, you do NOT want to miss it this year. Costumes on and off the water didn’t distract from great competition, but they definitely added smiles. The Halloween Regatta encourages participation from veteran racers to casual cruisers looking to check out the racing scene. Competitors can choose from spinnaker or cruising classes and expect interesting distance courses around Hillsborough Bay. By popular request, this is a one day event. Racing is scheduled in the afternoon so your morning is free for life’s other obligations. After an afternoon of racing, DIYC will host a post-race “Halloween” costume party for all participants, guests, and all club members. Live entertainment will be jamming so let’s have some fun.

Regatta Chair: Ben Richmond
