In May we have a classic event hosted by the infamous Len B. If you haven't been to the Newcomer's cruise over memorial day, you are missing out on one of our top three cruises of the year! May 24-26th we head over to Boca Ceiga Yacht Club to be pampered by Len's culinary masterpieces, really. Plus much more, including breakfast.

June is a DOUBLE cruise month!

Batter's UP with Bob Sardo June 7th. For less than $20pp Bob will lead us over to watch the Ray's kick the Mariners. It has been a really great way to enjoy a weekend of sailing and baseball. Will need to know who's going by June 1st . Details are on the cruising board at TSS and will get more detailed as we get closer.

June 14th - Magnuson Inn Cruise with Pat N. hosting. This is an easy fun event with pools, tiki bar, marina, and dinner. Great time within Tampa Bay.

Join us for a day of sailing and fun that night!

DIYC Tampa Bay Hospice Cup   APRIL 26 th

The date of the 2014 regatta is Saturday, April 26th .  We'll have overnight dock space for any of the TSS sailors who want to come join in.    Come in on Friday afternoon and participate in the skipper's meeting and a 'Chat with Charley' Morgan Friday night.    Sailing happens during the day on Saturday (4/26), with the awards that night.   There will be bands both nights, rum specials, etc.  After sailing, there is a unique protest hearing where (for a $5 donation) anyone can protest anyone for anything...anything at all.....doesn't have to be related to sailing and most of them weren't!.   It was a huge hit last year.   We call it 'Judge Jamie's Kangaroo Kourt"  You don't want to miss it!

For non-racers, the "Just for Fun" fleet gets them out on the water without the pressure of a starting line, or a designated winner.   We will have prizes within the fleet, but they are for things like oldest crew, number of non or first time sailors on board, best food, most outlandish costumes....you get the idea.   We give them marks to go around....if they want to...in any order they choose....just to give them a purpose.  This was the most fun fleet and I personally think it is the best way to get non-racers to leave the dock and have some fun.

I'm trying to come up with a perpetual trophy for the sailing organization which brings the most boats.   If TSS shows up in force....I promise I'll have something!    Of course, I'm going to be talking to Boca Ciega too, so tell you group to show up in mass.

There is a dinner/silent auction two weeks before the regatta on April 12th .   We can always use participants and donated items for that too.

Charley's dream is to create the largest annual sailing event in Tampa Bay....and have it benefit the wonderful work of hospice care all around the Bay area.   Davis Island Yacht Club and Tampa Sailing Squadron have a great shared history and many personal connections.    You have some great folks down there and we'd love to have TSS members play a big part in this event as it grows.  

Here are some of the basics:

- Entry fee is $60
- One-day regatta ( Apr 26 )
- Open to all sailboats (not just for Morgans)
- After Friday night skipper's meeting, we'll have a "chat with Charley Morgan"
- A Just-For-Fun division allows cruisers to come out and enjoy without any competitive racing
