Seabrook, TX: Lakewood Yacht Club (LYC) and the Bay Access Foundation are pleased to present this year's
KO Sailing Musto Shoe Regatta
May 20-21, 2017.
First hosted by LYC and organized by Bay Access in 1982, this regatta is open to the public and will be raced on Galveston Bay. It's a popular event for the local racers; in previous years, the crew members of the winning boats in each class received a pair of quality deck shoes. This year's first place winners in each class will be presented with a pair of primo Musto sailing shoes designed specifically for racing enthusiasts.
The regatta is open to one-design, handicap and cruising sailboats over 20 feet in length with a cabin. Three courses will be available to accommodate the one-design, PHRF and distance classes.
