General Information About Boat Launching:

There are three (1 ton, 2 ton, and 5 ton) hoists. The 1 ton and 2 ton hoists will be utilized for the regatta. The 5 ton hoist will be reserved for club members. There is a large paved area surrounding the hoists. 

General Information About the Racing Area:

Average Wind Direction during November: North to East
Average Wind Speed: 7-12 Knots
Average Water Depth: 10 Feet
Tides: Rise or Fall Up to 2.5 Feet or 0.75 Meters

The shoreline can have some influence, however, the area is large enough to sail clear of the shore. If a cold front passes through, which is somewhat rare in November, wind can become strong and gusty. In a North, East, and West wind, the water is protected from large wave build up, and therefore is considered flat water. There is a very small chance of a Southerly wind direction, which can produce greater wave heights.

Travel and Local Information:

The yacht club is located approximately 15 minutes from Tampa International Airport. 

There is adequate parking for trailers and cars at the yacht club. The club is located about 3 km from several large brand hotels. There also may be private home/room rentals available nearby through AirBnB or VRBO. November is still considered low season, therefore, rates can be very reasonable. 

Charter Boat Availability:
Charter boats will be available through Norlin Mark III One Design.
