About DIYC Youth Sailing Foundation Program:
Davis Island Youth Sailing Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization, with the purpose 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. The foundation is 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 supporting activities.
