About Davis Island Youth Sailing Foundation (DIYSF)

Davis Island Youth Sailing Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization committed to support and promote the sport of sailing for the youth of Tampa Bay in an environment which encourages safety, good sportsmanship, self-reliance, and respect for authority, the community and the marine environment. We are funded through donations and proceeds from our Learn To Sail and Continuation Sailing programs, as well as the Annual Davis Island Youth Sailing Foundation Auction and various other activities.

Our goal is to promote the sport of sailing, encourage independence, self-reliance, and good character. We feel an outdoor, on the water learning experience with other young people, each person the "captain of his/her own ship" is one of the most enjoyable ways to accomplish this goal.

Annual Summer Learn-To-Sail Program

On behalf of the Davis Island Youth Sailing Foundation, Inc. (DIYSF) we welcome you and your family to our Learn-to-Sail Program. To those who will be coming to our program for the first time, we extend a special welcome.
