August Serves Up Great Times at Lakewood

Summer might be winding down for the kids, but the fun hasn't stopped here at Lakewood!

Sailors throughout the Gulf Coast are looking forward to the Annual Bay Cup II Regatta. Drawing competitive racers to Trinity Bay and Upper Galveston Bay, the second race in the Bay Cup series tests the limits of navigational skills. Families and friends of skippers and their crews will enjoy fun social events at the club, including a dinner awards banquet featuring live entertainment by the LC Roots band.

Winding down the long, hot days of summer, members look forward to the August social mixer. There's nothing like taking a break from the daily grind with fun door prizes, a tall, cool drink, and great friends at the club.

The kids are wrapping up their summer fun with a Back to School Party by the Pool. They're pulling out all the stops to bring in a waterslide for some colossal cannonballs. After dark, they'll chill out to a dive-in movie. You know it's a party when it involves popcorn and Star Wars.

Returning home from Vilamoura, Portugal, the Lakewood Youth Sailors are still celebrating their ground-breaking record as the 2016 Optimist Team Racing World Champions. Home for training, they're gearing up for the Northeastern Championship in Newport, RI, the Rockin' Rockport Regatta in Rockport, TX, and the Cannonball Run in Pensacola, FL.

Midway through August, Lakewood welcomes our neighbors from Waterford Harbor Yacht Club for a sip-and-stroll in the Inner Harbor. We'll meet and greet over wine and cheese, and enjoy the laid-back R&B dance tunes of the band Chameleon.

Finally, the Lakewood Cruisers will take a leisurely sail through the Inner Harbor and land-cruise over to the Vessel Command Center. The Coast Guard will take us on a tour of the traffic center for the Houston/Galveston ship channel. Later that evening, we'll kick back with cocktails and a cookout on the dock.

Great friends and summer fun make for some memorable times here at Lakewood!
