Seabrook, TX: Lakewood Yacht Club (LYC) and the Bay Access Foundation are excited to announce that the 2017 Heald Bank Race originally schedule to take place in late April will be raced July 29-30, 2017.
"The original race was postponed due to inclement weather," says Heald Bank Regatta Chair Bob Hunkins. "We are happy to have found an open weekend in July to host the event."
Heald Bank Race is one of the three-event Texas Offshore Circuit (TORC). The Houston Yacht Club Offshore Regatta and the Galveston Bay Cruising Association Regatta constitute the other two TORC events. Boats sailing in the PHRF Spinnaker Class will be eligible to compete for the TORC championship trophy, the Texas Navy Cup if they enter all three races. Competitors sailing in the PHRF Non-Spinnaker Class in all three events will be eligible for the S. Rhoads Fisher Trophy.
Lakewood Yacht Club (LYC) is one of the best-kept secrets on Clear Lake as well as the Greater Houston and Galveston communities. LYC is a private, member-owned club with great amenities to enjoy with friends and family. Located on 38 beautifully landscaped acres in the NE corner of Clear Lake, it's an exceptional environment for social, boating and other water activities.
