Don’t Miss J/Fest Southwest Regatta Registration Deadline
Lakewood Yacht Club urges sailors planning to enter the 7th Annual J/Fest Southwest Regatta to note the registration deadline, which is October 22 at 1700 hours.
Hosted by Lakewood Yacht Club and J-Boats Southwest, the actual race will take place in Galveston Bay from October 28-30. While the J/Fest Southwest is a relatively new regatta, it draws 70 plus competitive racers from around the country. J/Boats come in a variety of classes and are designed for cruising, day sailing or racing.
The calm winds and moderate climates of the Texas coast make fall a great place for J/Boat racers and spectators to enjoy this national regatta. Spectators can enjoy the view from shore or as a guest aboard the Liberty Belle spectator boat.
Post-event festivities include live music from the LC Roots band, a live Cajun shrimp boil and great drink specials.
Visitors have plenty of local attractions to choose from such as Space Center Houston, the Kemah Boardwalk and amusement park, Armand Bayou or Galveston Island.
