Tampa Bay Hospice Cup (Includes Morgan Invasion)

We have a bunch of folks signed up for the Hospice Cup already & I'm sure we'll have a bunch more as we get closer to the event. 

Boats, Crew & Landlubbers are invited to join one of the biggest & most fun events of the year.

Support a fantastic cause with categories for every kind of boat and skill level with shore events for those who are not sailing.

The Morgan Invasion has grown and morphed to include all kinds of sailboats in multiple classes, from serious racers to the "just-for-fun" class for more casual participants.

There is something for everyone from testing your boat and sailing skills, just getting out on the water or watching from dry land to join in the fun.

I will be organizing a group of boats from Tampa Sailing Squadron to go this event. Please contact me for specific details.

Activities begin on Friday evening with registration, skippers' meeting and a talk by Charley Morgan himself. Boats will probably be coming in to DIYC during the week and will likely stay for the weekend. More information will be provided as it is made available. Registration, NOR, & other information please check out the link below:

  • Margo R.

    This is a great event. But I'll probably have to beg off. I have no specific boat assignment at this time, and have to make plans. I know how hard it is to organize something like this.

    I would also like to know if there is a chance to get on a boat on Saturday. Otherwise, I can make other plans.

    April 21, 2014

  • Margo R.

    This is scheduled for this Saturday and I've not heard about how/which boat/ etc. I might be assigned to. I know it's tough getting this together, but wonder what's the latest?

    Hi, Nick! I crewed on a Morgan 44 last year. My day started at 8am and the party was going strong when I left DIYC at 8pm. It is a FUN, FUN, FUN day, and a great cause. I will be there again this year, crewing on a Just For Fun boat.

      No, but I would :) I feel a protest coming on!!!

    This is the same day of the maintenance meeting so we can't attend.

    Search mfg or model sometimes, and at least 1 foot shorter.
    Creekmore 30 had 3 models, 1964 with a -1, 1982 with a -2 and -3 Center Board.

      Lee only built two of these then destroyed the mold. The other is still in Miami. Stubby was his own MORC boat & the two he did build are not the same. He still all the plans etc from when he built her. The biggest issue is ballast whether its 4k lbs or 6k lbs - Lee think its the latter but the guy I bought her fro said its the former. That puts into question what he told me about displacement too. I just need to ask Lee.

    Nick, I did not see "Stubby" signed up, out of the 38-boats. We need "Captains"! Who needs to get their boat ready & sailing?
    There's lots crew available for cleaning, rigging, washing, waxxing, polishing, hoisting flags, hoisting sail, rolling main covers, coiling line, and maybe even bringing gourmet food & drink!

      Stubby is entered & so far is winning the "motherlode" class. Come & kick my butt ... if you dare!!!

      I will take no prisoners - take a look at my bowsprit!

  • Margo R.

    Are we going to be assigned to a boat? I've RSVP'd as crew. Ready to hear. Thanks for your hard work on this.

    April 2, 2014

    • Nick

      We do need skippers with boats in Tampa Bay Sailing to step up & offer to enter their boats. Until we know what boats we have no assignments can be made. Most folk register in the last couple of weeks before an event.

    Can someone tell me more about this? I would love to sail, casually or racing, but don't know anyone with a boat. Should I be buying a ticket for something? How does it work?
    Thanks.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
