Egmont Key Race dates back to 1935 and is the oldest running sailboat race on the west coast of Florida. It was created as a warm-up race for the Havana Race. The 65 mile long course takes racers around the key and back to DIYC. We also offer a 50 mile short course that stays inside the key for cruising and small spinnaker boats. The winner of the long course is awarded the perpetual Houston Wall Trophy.

Provide the women of the Tampa Bay area an opportunity to compete against each other with all female crew and socialize after the racing.  Provide an opportunity for less-experienced women to compete and gain the confidence with a coach on board.  Allow other participants (i.e. those of the male persuasion) to coach some of our lady sailors.
