In Texas the 2019 season got off to an early start with the 3rd annual Rock the Ice Regatta, hosted by the Corinthian Sailing Club in Dallas. Though the wind was light, the temperatures were warm, providing the competitors a much needed respite from the winter cold! We had several competitors come from outside our district, with one from Oklahoma City and another from Traverse City, Michigan.
By the end of the event, we had 6 races between the 19 competitors. Finishing third was a Eric Roman, in second Doug Peckover, and taking first was Griffin Orr winning 5/6 races.
Next, the Texas Fleet moves onto the annual Easter Laser Regatta held on Lake Travis by the Austin Yacht Club and none other than the Easter Bunny himself!! For those of you who do know Easter is April 20/21, so just over a month away!! Following the floods of last fall, Lake Travis is currently sitting 6 inches above full, so prepare for a full lake and fair winds!!
Not too long after Easter, we move down to the Gulf Coast for the Seabrook Summer Solstice regatta held June 22/23 at the Seabrook Sailing Club. Expect great breeze, waves, and unmatched hospitality at this regatta! Not one to miss!!
