Thanks to Rose Williams for this information. Sounds like a fun time for a group to go support John and his crew or follow him online.
John Williams and Crew (which includes Jonathon Atwood) have entered to race in the 33rd Annual Harvest Moon Regatta (race from Galveston to Port Aransas). John's boat is a Cosair F31(trimaran). He will be in the multihull class. The boat name is "Gimme Samoa".
Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook sponsors the race and Bacardi sponsors the BBQ/Awards Party in the Port A Marina Saturday evening. Anyone can go online and buy a wristband for the BBQ/rum drinks (all you can drink until they run out!). You can also BYOB. Lots of people!! Lots of fun!!
Race starts in Galveston on Thursday, October 10th, and first boats cross the finish line in Port A on Friday morning. Boats come in all day and into the evening. You can watch the start in Galveston on the seawall at 2:00 p.m. Oct.10th, and/or watch the finish line in Port A on Friday by the marina/jetty on the ship channel. Most boats dock in the city marina thru the weekend. It is an awesome site to see and to walk the docks.
