Mutineer National Championship

November 8 - 12, 2021


A Call for Your Help

From Sunday November 7th through Friday November 12th we are hosting the Mutineer National Championships at Tampa Sailing Squadron.  Fellow sailors need your help.   Competitors are traveling here from as far away as Colorado to participate.  One of their biggest costs is finding an inexpensive place to stay while they are here racing with us.   

If you would be so kind to consider “hosting” a two person crew for this time period that would help not only the racers, but TSS by making it possible for more boats to come to this regatta.  I’m looking for a room in your house just for them to sleep at night.  They will probably leave in the AM for breakfast at TSS and come home in the evening after the day’s events.  No cooking or time is needed by you other than to greet them and make them feel welcome at TSS.  

I am also looking for some boats for them to use as their home for these few days.  If you have a boat at TSS that can sleep two or three people would you please consider offering this?  They can use the clubhouse for bathrooms and showers, so they need just a place to crash.  They would be bringing their own sleeping bag or sheets, their is nothing you have to do except get them setup upon arrival.  AC is not required as November the weather is cool enough at night.  Please volunteer your boat!

Please email me or text me is you can help me accommodate these sailors. or 813-404-9712.   

I need you.  Please don’t think that “others” will do this for us.  Message me now!

The Memorial Garden 

TSS Memorial Garden Project Update

Over the past 2 years a small group of dedicated Members has worked very hard to overcome challenges to completing the TSS Memorial Garden.  There has been COVID of course and the heat and financing.  However, we have persevered and as a result you can see the beautiful Memory Garden we now have.  I think you will agree this is a huge improvement over what was here and is a wonderful honor to the legacy of past members.  We are about 75% finished with our project but recent cost increases for materials have left us short of funds for its completion.  It is for this reason that we are reaching out to our membership with a fund raising request so that we can complete the deck we plan to build between the existing patio and the fence.  The cost of the deck and the last of the landscaping is projected to be $4500.00.  That is a big sum but given the generosity of the TSS family, it is something easily obtainable.  We have about 250 members now and if we can get 50 of those members to donate $100 or 100 members to donate $50, we're there.  You get the idea, no matter what you can donate, it will go a long way toward completing this wonderful addition to the TSS grounds.  If you can make a donation, please put it in the Memory Garden folder or reach out directly to me to arrange a donation.  

Thank you for your support,
Mary and the Memory Garden Team
