FYC is proud of its stature as the sailing capital of Northeast Florida, a position which is evidenced by the multitude of regattas featured at the Club each year. FYC serves as host to youth regattas such as the Equinox Regatta, the Cowford Cup, and the King’s Day Regatta. FYC also hosts national Regattas like the Orange Peel Regatta, and is often selected to host major championships such as the Thistle National Championships.
