The Lakewood Yacht Club’s 2011 Bay Cup II will be held on Saturday, Aug. 6.
The race is open to the public. Racers can register for $50 at www.lakewoodyachtclub.com under the racing button. Classes include PHRF Spinnaker, Short-handed Offshore Sailors, Cruising Non-Spinnaker and Multi-Hulls.
There will be a Saturday night pool party and steak dinner with entertainment. The awards that night will be for the winners of Bay Cup II as well as the 2011 Bay Cup Series.
“Bay Cup II will feature long-distance racing in Galveston and Trinity Bays,” said Lakewood Yacht Club Race Committee Chairman Dwight Bengtson in the press release, “with multiple legs for a total of about five to 25 nautical miles, depending upon wind conditions. This should be a navigational challenge for the racers as well.”
