Reviews for Davis Island Yacht Club
Hospice Cup (Morgan Invasion) 2014 %u2013 Saturday April 26th, 2014-07-21
Captain: , Apollo Beach - Tampa, FL (311)

DIYC is a very nice sailing yacht club. This is a serious sailing club in a very nice location near downtown Tampa. Sailed early morning on April 26th from Apollo beach for the event. The Hospice Cup is a great event for a great cause. The DIYC event members and staff are great. The event provided food, music and free beer. Very professional and first rate. Stayed overnight in a slip and had everything I needed %u2013 Shore power, water, ice, pool, nice bathrooms and showers. Sailed back to Apollo beach the next day. I have sailed for a few years on Thursday night racing on SV Baywolf at DIYC and it has been a great experience. Not sure about Renasci+ review, but for ActiveCaptian%u2019s use we need reviews about the facility and support not on personal issues. The club is a Private serious sailing club and is excellent.

great club for casual people, 2013-04-04
Captain: , Venice, FL (23)

I'm also biased as a member of this club, but I joined because of the focus on sailing, the active youth programs and the overall casual atmosphere. No, there aren't any tennis courts or elegant dining rooms, but there is a great lunch menu during the week, weekend bruches and a great bar anytime - why would you drive 15 minutes away to get a beer????? The Davis Island downtown is easily within biking distance, has a couple of restaurants, some sandwich shops, laundry etc. Walking paths and slower traffic make the entire area much safer than downtown Tampa (just off the islands) so lots of bikers and hikers, outdoor excercisers, whatever. Great place!

And I used to be a member, 2013-02-16
Captain: , Jacksonville Florida (417)

Some of the members like Lewis Hill are great, he sponsored me into the club. They do have beer-can racing during the week and weekend regattas, but yea, they can be a little snippy. The like to try and elevate themselve by calling the club across the way, the Mule club because they have horses. And Jeff Linton is a Rolex Yacht's man of the year a couple of years ago, and they have other accomplished sailors, but the do like to think that they don't stink like the rest of us at times. They seem very self centered, which is fine, they can have it. There's NO place to turn around in the seaplane basin, so there's no anchoring. There's nothing within walking or biking distance, and if you get a strong wind out of the southwest, it'll back the water up high enough you can't walk the docks, which have short pilings last I saw. It's a good club to drive to on their weekly beercan race, bounce shoulder to shoulder with other sailors and pretend you're somewhere really cool like a south florida regatta, then race for an hour then drive like crazy to get to one of two meat-markets within 15 mins driving, pound more beers and hope you don't have too good a time and can make it to work the next day. They have a swimming pool and outside bathhouse which is nice. They used to have a fulltime person there during the days, his name was Art, but they ran him out and I don't know if there's anyone there during the daytime in the clubhouse that will make sandwiches, etc. The one thing I personally came away from DIYC with that really mattered, was the time I went sailing with Joe Linton, one of the founding fathers, and appriciation for Loren's friendship because he introduced me to racing.

High Tide Ramp, 2012-02-13
Captain: , Tampa, Fl (20)

If you have a boat over 22 foot then plan around the tide. You can only use it on a meduim to high tide. Gut the city put in a nice dog park if you bring your pet.

The Sailingest Club in the South, 2011-02-23
Captain: , St. Petersburg, FL (592)

This is my home club so I'm biased. It's not your typical upscale Yacht club, but has very active racing and cruising fleets. Cruisers who are members of other Florida Council Clubs have full reciprocity and are welcome. It can get very crowded and busy during Thursday night races and weekend regattas. The bar upstairs is without a doubt the best place to watch a sunset over Tampa bay!

Not very nice, 2011-01-03
Captain: , Ocean Springs MS (1032)

We drove to this area from Mississippi with our boat in tow. I called ahead. The girl on the phone was super rude, very snippy, and I was told there was NO reciprocity with any clubs which are not in Florida.

So much for their website which suggests something to the effect of 'fostering relationships amongst sailing organizations.'

I note that if I'd gone to AC and read before I called I'd have known about the reciprocity issue (albeit not the rudeness.)
