MIYC October 2017

Marco Island Yacht Club


Sailing Fleet Below is information on how to register to race in 2017-18 Southwest Florida sailing regattas. The SWFLSAIL.com website also has the complete schedule of regattas for the up- coming season. A link to this is also on our club's website under "Boating"/"Sailing". Sailing regattas are fun boating destinations as spectators. Super ocean-based photo ops! Just be sure to stay clear of the racing course, giving the racing boats plenty of room.to maneuver. Once again, we're planning to have weekday evening sailing in small boats, once we return to daylight saving time in March. Stay tuned for further information. SWFLSAIL.COM IS OPERATIONAL
