Harvest Moon Regatta (RYC participates)

For more than 24 years, the Harvest Moon Regatta kicks off in mid October in Galveston on a Wednesday ending on Saturday. As part of the event, sponsored by Lakewood Yacht Club, 215 or so sailboats with colorful sails will take off from the Flagship Hotel in Galveston and head 150 miles through the Gulf of Mexico to Port Aransas, all vying for the Bacardi Cup. The race typically begins at 2 pm on Thursday and ending some 25 hours later around 1 pm Saturday. Various rewards are presented to competing ships at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Pavilion at City Marina in Port Aransas. If you subscribe to the axiom, "Gentlemen don't go to weather," then this offshore regatta is for you. Unlike heading out for a Gulf crossing to Mexico or Florida, you will remain relatively close to shore. Starting order is determined according tothe speed and other characteristics of each vessel, helping to keep the fleet closer in proximity and increase the competitive spirit. Harvest Moon Regatta is a Category 3 (ISAF Offshore Regulations Governing Offshore Racing for Monohulls & Multihulls) open regatta for all racing, cruising, spinnaker and non-spinnaker sailing yachts. Yachts must be at least 27 feet length on deck ("LOD"). Monohulls must have a minimum crew of four capable sailors. Multihulls must have a minimum crew of three experienced and capable sailors.A Welcome Sailor Rum Party is held at the City Marina Pavilion, Port Aransas followed by an awards Party & Banquet at 5:30 pm. Then, for those who stay Saturday night there is a Donuts and Rum Mary Party Sunday morning.
