2019 Sunfish Midwinters

This year’s Sunfish U.S. National Championship at Midwinters March 28-31 is being held in Tampa, FL hosted by Davis Island Yacht Club .As the official Pan American Games Qualifier for the US, the top US sailor will go on to represent the US in the Pan American Games in Peru this summer. Expect some great competition from our top Sunfish sailors. Come learn from the best as the top sailors share their tips with us every day.

The Midwinters are open to all Sunfish class members. Friendly competition happens at all levels. I know. I never worked so hard to be in last place at my first Midwinters, battling it out for 55th place.

What’s not to love about sailing on beautiful Hillsborough Bay in March? The weather and water will be warm. Dolphins are entertaining yet, watch out, they can be distracting!

There will be post racing regatta beer, a welcome reception Thursday night, a banquet at the yacht club on Saturday night and optional Friday night dinner at the new upscale Tampa food court, Armature Works, with a choice of at least a dozen different cuisines and wide assortment of beverages with outdoor seating on the Hillsborough River.

The DIYC Thursday night racing series starts on March 28. Watch from our beautiful porch over a beer. Want to go out and race on a big boat? Sign up as "crew looking for boat" by 5:15 and catch a ride.

Come share your love of Sunfish sailing March 28-31 in Tampa, FL. Make new friends and renew old friendships on and off the race course.
