RS Aero North American Championship - May 19-22, 2022
Davis Island Yacht Club is excited to host the 2022 RS Aero North American Championship in Tampa, Florida, USA. We expect representation from all RS Aero rig sizes to come compete against one another in this year's NA Championship.
On Thursday 19th a RS Aero race clinic and practice racing is planned followed by three days of championship racing from Friday 20th - Sunday 22nd May.
On the water, Davis Island YC is known for its regular sea breeze from the southwest from late May until November when this is replaced by steady winter winds ranging from 8-15 knots on any given day. DIYC warmly offers its experience, volunteers, and passion for sailing to the RS Aero fleet as the host for the 2022 RS Aero North Americans.
This North American Champs forms the perfect build up to the 2022 RS Aero World Championship at the Columbia Gorge, USA, just five weeks later.
Registration is now open and available online via Regatta Network;
Tampa to Ft. Myers Race - May 27-28, 2022

The Tampa to Ft. Myers race, occurring annually on Memoria Day weekend, represents DIYC’s  conclusion of the Boat of the Year series and with it, the conclusion of our regatta calendar. This race’s history dates back to 1946 and 2019 brought back Naples Sailing and Yacht Club whose feeder race the week before (May 22-23) will bring additional competitors to our regatta.  A 100-mile coastal race, Tampa Bay to Ft. Myers has everything from J-24s, multihulls, and 40′+ footers racing.  Of course, the destination is fabulous finishing at Ft Myers Beach – one of the remaining “Old Florida” beach towns.  All competitors departing from Tampa Bay compete for the Navigator’s Trophy donated by OH Rogers.  It is awarded to the first boat to finish in any class.
