Bay Cup II Draws Racers to Galveston Bay

Lakewood Yacht Club will host the annual long-distance Bay Cup II Regatta on August 6. Drawing competitive racers to Trinity Bay and Upper Galveston Bay, the second race in the Bay Cup series tests the limits of navigational skills.

The race course challenges sailors with multiple legs that total 15 to 25 nautical miles. Lakewood racer Dwight Bengston appreciates the skill level of the summer regatta. "The Bay Cup II is a distance race around a combination of fixed marks. The idea is to give people multiple points of sail around Galveston and Trinity Bay."

Competing vessels will include large keel boats, generally ranging from 30-50 feet. A variety of PHRF, multihull, and one-design classes will be represented. The course begins in Trinity Bay and finishes close to Kemah.

Volunteers stand ready on hand to make this year's regatta a one-of-a-kind event. Race Committee Chair Larry Rogers asserts the utmost confidence in Lakewood's members. "We have around 100 volunteers who help out with racing events. From organizing registration to planning entertainment for the awards ceremonies, it's an amazing effort from an amazing group of volunteers."

Families and friends of skippers and their crews will enjoy fun social events at the club as well as spending time in the Bay Area, taking in the local sites.
