The Founder’s Cup – Doc Kerman Regatta is held in memory of the original founders of our sailing club.
"Dr. Kerman, Dr. Schildecker, Sapstire, Larry Meith, Peggy Meith, Fred Wallace, Norm Laskey, Thompson, Ed Giles, Clement, Dahl and Hampton."
This incomplete list of the attendees of the first organizational meeting of the club, held in the Daytona Beach Municipal Marina in October of 1957, is all we know about some of the club’s founders. What we do know is that their efforts produced our sailing club.
This race is traditionally youth oriented, featuring a buoy course for the dinghy classes as well as a distance race for the adult racers.
This year’s race was scheduled for 26 March 2022 however, it has been cancelled.
