    Kevin Off and crew are planning to sail on the bay this Saturday.  Their dock time is 11am and plan on being on the bay by 12pm.

    I am going to try to get a boat to assist and welcome anybody who wants to tune up with us. Call or email Stuart to confirm.

    I will be sending additional emails soon about next years activities.

    Ready for one last race this year? The GBCA Chili Chase Regatta is this Saturday. Already enough J/22s signed up to have our own class. Only $35 entry fee, and that gets you and your crew all the chili, beer, and rum you can handle after racing. December sailing doesn't get much better than this!

    The 2017 Southwest District Circuit winners were announced last weekend at the last Circuit of the Season.  There were 7 Circuit Regattas scheduled with only 6 being held because of the Corpus Christy Circuit stop being cancelled due to Hurricane Harvey.  Still, we had 39 Southwest District J22’s participating in one or more of the Circuits this season.  Out of those, 15 were Fleet 6 J22’s! 

    The scoring is the total of the Circuit points awarded in the boat’s best four completed Circuit Regattas.  The competitor with the lowest Circuit score wins, and others are ranked accordingly. The 2017 winner was Vincent Ruder of Kemah and crew Brant Koepke and Glenn Harrison.   Stuart Lindow of Seabrook earned 2nd place, Kevin Orff and Eric Simonson of Houston took home a 3rd place trophy, Keith Zars of Canyon Lake placed 4th, and Dov Kivlovitz of El Jardine took 5th. Four out of the top five trophies went to Fleet 6 J22’s!  

    Way to represent Fleet 6!

    Circuit #7, hosted by Lake Canyon Yacht Club, is always one of the J22 Southwest District’s favorite venues because of the friendly volunteers and the wonderful food they prepare. It’s a great club on a beautiful lake that provides a variety of conditions for racing and last weekend was no different. It turned out to be a one day regatta as race committee determined that the front brought too much wind with it on Saturday for safe racing. They got off three races on Sunday in light shifty winds that proved very challenging for the circuit riders. Doug Weakly and crew, from Corpus Christy, responded well to the challenge easily taking 1st place. Mark Foster and crew from Canyon Lake took 2nd, Tom Meeh and crew from Seabrook earned 3rd, Nataleigh Perez and crew from Houston placed 4th, and Jeff Jones and crew from Belton took 5th. Out of the 15 J22's racing, six were Fleet 6 boats that traveled to Canyon Lake for the last Circuit of the year!  I can safely say a good time was had by all!

    Take your boat to Canyon Lake this weekend and leave her there for the next weekend! The Wurstfest II Regatta is Nov 11-12, and the J/22s have the largest class so far.  The very next weekend is our Circuit Regatta #7 Nov 18-19 at the very same place. How convenient! Sign up now!

    With as estimated 66 J/Boats participating in this annual event, Fleet 6 J/22’s made a great showing with 14 boats making their way out into the bay.  The wind conditions were light on Saturday causing a postponement but Race Committee was able to get off four races. However, on Sunday, there were no races due to storms.  Kevin Hayes and crew took 1st, Vincent Ruder and crew were a point behind in 2nd, Stuart Lindow and crew placed 3rd, Klynn Lundemo and crew were a point behind in 4th, and Dov Kivlovitz and crew scored 5th.  Thanks to all who participated!
