On behalf of the Davis Island Youth Sailing Foundation, please consider contributing to or becoming a sponsor of the Annual Trashathon. Our sailors and over 100 volunteers from the area will spend the day after Gasparilla cleaning all of the waterways around the Islands and every inch of public space on DI! Our partners again this year are The Davis Island Yacht Club, The Davis Island Civic Association, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful and Tampa Bay Watch. Your support will contribute to the moral and physical development of local children of all socioeconomic levels from nine local schools. Learning to sail is an exceptional way to develop children into mature teens who take responsibility, compete with good sportsmanship, and understand risk and their own limits.
We raise funds for the facilities and equipment used by our youth sailors. In addition, we offer summer learn-to-sail camps, including no-cost "Sailorships" for those who are financially limited. This year is the opportunity to re-capitalize much of our fleet and to expand our summer learn-to-sail (LTS) programs to reach more Tampa area youth.
Your donation will contribute to the following fund development goals already in the works:
