The oldest running sailboat race on the west coast of Florida. The new course established two years ago takes the racecourse around Egmont Key, providing bay and Gulf racing conditions. The race is both a DIYC and Suncoast Boat-of-the Year event. There is a short course that remains inside the Skyway Bridge for smaller boats, but still offers a challenging course. The long course qualifies for the prestigious Egmont Key Houston Wall perpetual trophy originally established as a warm-up for the Cuba Race. Following the race is the traditional DIYC Chili Cookoff event.
