A challenging and fun venue – expect to see flat water with shifty lake-like conditions. Despite it being known as the Sunshine State, be sure to pack warm clothing and foul weather gear. Fronts move through during the winter months regularly, bringing cold and windy conditions. For the J/70 racers out there the J/70 Winter Series, held the weekends of December 12-13th, January 18-22nd, and February 6-7th hosted by Davis Island Yacht Club on Tampa Bay is a great place to get your feet wet. Competitors must compete in a minimum of two of the three regattas during the series to qualify for a podium position.
