Season of Sailing

The Sarasota Yacht Club 39th Annual Invitational Regatta on November 1-2 invited Club members, local sailors, and youth sailors to compete in one of the best regattas on the Suncoast. The event boasted opportunities to participate for all, even non-boaters. The weekend began with a Friday night Opening Night Party/Skipper's Meeting with live entertainment, lite bites, and keg beer. Saturday was a full day on the water where even non-boating members had a front row seat to the action aboard the Spectator Fleet. Participants enjoyed the electric post-race atmosphere on Saturday evening featuring a spectacular pig roast dinner, awards ceremony, and live entertainment!

Thank you to everyone who joined us on the water and helped with the event behind the scenes. We had over 140 boats on Sarasota Bay!

The 40th Annual Sarasota Yacht Club Invitational Regatta will take place on Saturday, November 6, 2021. Stay tuned for updates.
