Seabrook TX: Lakewood Yacht Club is looking forward to hosting this year's Texas Youth Race Week July 11-16, 2017.
TYRW is a Team Trials Qualifying (TTQ) event for the United States Optimist Dinghy Association (USODA) and a US Sailing (USSA) Junior Olympic event.
The event is open to international Optimist dinghies, Lasers, i420s and Fevas. All competitors must be US Sailing members. You can sign up at www.ussailing.org.
Each year, Texas Youth Race Week is a collaborative event between Texas Corinthian Yacht Club, Houston Yacht Club, and Lakewood Yacht Club.
Registration is July 11th. A sports nutritionist will educate the competitors over breakfast July 12th followed by starting clinics for all fleets. That evening, LYC will host a kickoff dinner that includes guest speaker US Sailing Senior Olympic Coach Luther Carpenter. Parents of the competing youth sailors won't be left out as they will enjoy an opportunity to socialize, as well. The four days of races for the various fleets will be held on Clear Lake and Galveston Bay July 13-16.
Texas Youth Race Week began in 1991 from the Galveston Bay Tri-Club Regatta, but it traces its origins back to the first invitational Ragnot Regatta of 1961.
