On The Water Activities

 Chapter 6

Tucker Coxwell's year as commodore had a big event the dedication of the new clubhouse on April 12, 1986. Finally the club had a permanent and useable home.  Racing continued through the spring and summer and the ever popular sunfish races highlighted the summer for the families. The annual Seafair regatta in conjunction with the Chamber's Seafair was held as usual in October and a full year of sailing ended with the Parade of Lights at Christmas.

And the years rolled on. Dick Harrington 87, Kay Jenkins 88, George Sullivan 89. Each Commodore put his or her own touch on the sailing year. Naming the races and making innovations in the timetable and events at the club. In January 1988 the installation dinner was held for the first time at the Country Club a tradition which continues to this day. Once again the Rockport Port Isabel race created excitement with the weather. Also since the club did not have a TABC license at this time each member would rent a locker and keep a bottle of their favorite beverage in it. The club would provide at a nominal fee the set-ups for Happy Hour or dinners. These lockers were quite a piece of work as the resident artist Al Barnes decorated the front of each locker with colorful scenes. Al's wife Nancy created the ceramic plaques which decorate the front of the club at this time also. ( I can find no pictures in the scrapbooks of these lockerĀ  if anyone has a picture I would love to scan it for the history just let me know - fp)

During these years several of our club members competed in the Ultimate race. Four ultra light displacement boats were built and set out to hold races in all parts of the US to the excitement of thousands of spectators. The Blue Bayou Too from Corpus with Bill and Jeff Coxwell as crew members during various races competed and amassed an admirable record including winning the series race in the New London, Conn.
