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.

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.
