Gasparilla Regatta

2015 Gasparilla Regatta Registration

Our annual regatta at Tampa Yacht & Country Club draws close to a hundred Optimist sailors from all over the state. Sailors from as far as Jacksonville and the Lauderdale area converge on Hillsborough Bay for two days of ideal sailing. This event takes place on the second weekend of January and two weeks prior to the Gasparilla festivities. Pirate sightings, cannon blasts and bead throwing are common practice minus the scurvy. Our regatta features delicious food, a great atmosphere and friendly members and guests.

This regatta is for Optimist RWB and Green fleets only.
