J-Fest Southwest Early Registration Deadline is Fast Approaching
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.
The early entry deadline for J/ Fest is August 28th at 1700 hrs. Each crew member of the teams that sign up before the early entry deadline will receive regatta t-shirts! Register at www.jfestsouthwest.com.
This popular regatta, hosted by Lakewood Yacht Club and J-Boats Southwest, has become a favorite fall tradition among sailors in the Houston Bay Area. Entries in this year’s race include J-Boats ranging from 22’ to 40’ in length, and will be crewed by some avid racers.
Cranes and storage for out of town boats are available, and there are numerous hotels located near Lakewood Yacht Club. Those who want to get a better view of the on-the-water action can do so from the deck of the Liberty Bell, a 60' motor yacht.
Post-race festivities include the well-known LC Roots Band for Saturday night entertainment & dancing as well as the traditional “Frogmore Stew” ( shrimp boil) dinner. Visit the new J/ Fest Southwest website (www.jfestsouthwest.com) for details.
