Lakewood Yacht Club and Bay Access are excited to present Bay Cup I, part of the 2016 Bay Cup Series! Fleet Captain Tom Frankum has announced that the 2016 Bay Cup I Regatta will be held on Saturday, March 5, on Galveston Bay.
This one-day event will once again showcase a full spectrum of sailboats and feature long distance premier racing.
“Bay Cup I is the first of a two race series with races having multiple legs totaling about 15 - 20 nautical miles,” explained David Comeaux, Bay Cup I Regatta Chair. “This will be an amazing experience to both sailors and spectators alike. “Make a weekend of it and bring the family and/or friends to enjoy your evenings at one of the fine hotels in Seabrook.”
Experience a weekend of sailing, music, dining, and fun at Lakewood Yacht Club! While here, families could also enjoy local entertainment that includes; inspiring the mind at Space Center Houston, relishing a stroll through Armand Bayou, enjoying the many rides at Kemah Boardwalk and hiking one of the numerous nature trails in the city of Seabrook. It is truly an outdoor paradise!
Bay Cup I is the first in a series with Bay Cup II taking place on August 6th. Overall trophies will be presented for the two-race series at the conclusion of Bay Cup II. Both are open to the public with a $75 registration fee each. This includes the Skipper’s Meeting on Friday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. in Lakewood’s ballroom, along with one meal and two drink tickets for the Saturday awards ceremony and amazing live music from Kelly McGuire. Kelly McGuire is an award-winning singer/songwriter that will make you smile, cry, tap your toes, kiss your guitar and have a blast.
