Thanks to the members who have already signed up to bake cookies for the RRR!

We still need a few more members to help by baking cookies.  These cookies are for us to serve for snacks when the kids, coaches and volunteers come in from the race course!  The cookies have been a hit these past two years and were one of the reasons our regatta was named the Best Regatta in  the Texas Sailing Association Youth Series in 2016!

You may bring your cookies to the club on Friday, August 17, during Happy Hour. If this time is not convenient for you, please let me know and we will make arrangements to meet.   If you have questions, please contact me.

Chapter 5

During 1984 the bridge also under took the task of finding a new waterfront home for the club. By November the club was considering the Rockport Harbor Fuel Dock. The membership voted in December to approve negotiating a lease from the Navigation District and purchasing the building. The Soundings article shows how the members were to pay for the building and the pictures show what it looked like at purchase time.

Then the work began. Under Commodore Clay Wilcox and building committee chair Al Barnes the first workday was held on Feb 16, 1985 to try and get the building ready for the sailing year. It was gutted and reworked to add heads, extend the deck 10 and generally make it presentable. As opportunities presented themselves people came and helped and eventually the building was painted the lovely blue of our current clubhouse. A waterfront home at last. And in what must have been a first the club welcomed a brand new junior member really junior. Commodore Clay gave birth to Chelsea in July of her commanding year. This was also the year of the 1st annual Christmas Boat Parade of Lights in Little Bay a tradition which continues today in concert with the Chamber of Commerce's Tropical Christmas.
