I ended up signing up for a half day sail on a Jeanneau 34 through Windsong Charters. We had a great captain that took us out to a nearby island for snorkeling and beachcombing - I highly recommend them! I'm a "Sailnet newbie" so I can't post links, but you can find them easily with a search engine.

I still want to try out CCSC, but that will have to wait for the next "business trip" to Florida! Good luck!
I've sailed with CCSC. Wife and I rented O'Day 22 (I think) for a half-day. Equipment a little tired but not too expensive. Played "tag" with a group (pod?) of dolphins that live in the bay. Wife really enjoyed it. One of the best sailing experiences we've had.

Re: Sailing in Clearwater/Tampa Bay Fl.

We took lessons thru Very nice organization, in a great area. Not Tampa, but still on the bay. They have daysail rates too. May be a bit more than what the OP may have been thinking.
