Lakewood To Host Bay Cup I on March 3
Lakewood Yacht Club race committee chair Gerhard Wittich has announced that the 2012 Bay Cup I will be held on Saturday, March 3.
This race is open to the public and race registration can be handled online at Lakewood’s web-site: www.lakewoodyachtclub.com under the racing button.
“This is the first of a two race series which features long distance racing in Galveston and Trinity Bays,” explained Wittich. Bay Cup II will be held on Saturday, August 11 with both races having multiple legs which total about 8 to 20 nautical miles. Overall trophies will be presented for the two race series at the conclusion of the Bay Cup II in August.
Wittich related that the club will continue the cruising non-spinnaker (classic canvas) and cruising poleless spinnaker classes as they were popular with racers last year. Other classes will include PHRF spinnaker and non-spinnaker, short-handed offshore sailors (SOS), multihull and possibly one-design. A minimum of four boats constitutes a class.
