Davis Island Yacht Club and Tampa – An Amazing venue for a World Championship

Nov 11, 2021

Davis Island Yacht Club and Tampa Florida are going to put on a great event in 2022. The venue was highlighted during the recent Pre Worlds event. The venue highlights include:

  • Great shoreside facilities with ample space and hoists for a large fleet
  • Great host city with ample dining and housing choices
  • Short sail from the club to the race¬† course

Missy Weiner was on hand at the Pre Worlds event to take pictures. Here is a small sampling:

Pre Worlds at Davis Island-Jeff Linton wins

Tampa FL 11/7/2021

As the US and Canadian fleets prepare for the 2022 International 2.4 meter worlds, good sailors are getting a head start by “testing” the venue.

Cloudy conditions, sailing on the course close to shore
Heading out for 3 races

Jeff Linton, 2007 Us Sailing Rolex Yachtsman of the year almost built a perfect picket fence. He finished the 7 race series in first, followed by Julio Reguero in second and Tony Pocklington in third.

Cloudy and cool sailing

The 12 boat fleet saw a variety of challenging conditions of the 2 day event and some boats got measured and certified for next years worlds.  The hope is to smooth out the process so next years event goes off without a hitch.

Fleet wide support for #BackTheBid and #SailtoLA
