    The 35th Annual Lakewood Yacht Club Harvest Moon Regatta (HMR) race registration deadline is Sunday, Sept.4th at www.HarvestMoonRegatta.com or  www.regattanetwork.com. If you are in the regatta, please register here so we can track the TMCA boats.

    TMCA has a perpetual trophy as part of the regatta. The HMR committee calculates the TMCA boats for us and the trophy is awarded during the ceremony in Port Aransas on Saturday, Oct 8th. If you are participating in the race, please be sure to list TMCA on your HMR registration. 

    There is historically a side bet among the TMCA boats, where each contributes a bottle of Rum. It is customary that the winner shares the Rum with all at the party Saturday night, so it’s a win for everyone!  Please let Ben Miller know if you want to participate in the ‘Rum Bet’.

    For those not sailing in the Regatta, consider going down for the 'Welcome Sailor Rum Party' and barbeque.  It’s always a grand celebration. Even if you are not in the race, this is a great opportunity to cruise appropriate sized powerboats to Port Aransas. You’ll need to purchase wrist bands for the party on the HMR website www.HarvestMoonRegatta.com.

    San Bernard Anchor Out Cruise

    Join us for a weekend at the San Bernard River. This is a lovely protected anchorage, surrounded by marsh, just south of the ICW, with access to the beach for fun or walking your dogs. There's typically an excess of driftwood on the beach so a bonfire is essential.

    This is a great opportunity to either travel the ICW or offshore to Freeport as the San Bernard River is approximately 10 statute miles south of the Freeport intersection, and beyond the Brazos River and associated locks. It's a full day trip for most, unless you have a 'go-fast boat'. The total mileage from the Clear Creek Marker 2 is approximately 65 miles. There's a great navigation writeup on our website for both the ICW and offshore routes under the 'Cruising' tab, then 'Destinatations', and under Freeport Marina. We plan to leave early Friday morning and return Monday.

    The cut at the Gulf has recently been dredged but rumor has it that it’s already filling in. There's decent fishing so bring a pole if that’s your thing. We’ll have dinghy excursions and walks on the beach.

    This will be a relaxed cruise with a bonfire Friday evening and a potluck Saturday evening.

    Let us know if you need additional information. I’ll be posting updates on TMCA’s FB as the date approaches and we will send all registrants an email the week of the trip.

    Attention Women of TMCA!

    WOW is an introductory/refresher boating class for TMCA women members, taught by TMCA women members.  You will learn basic rules of the road, navigation, radio communication, knot tying, docking and so much more!  The women instructors are veteran boaters happy to answer your questions and share their experiences.  You will have the opportunity to polish your skills or learn something new.  This is a fun, laid back class with lots of hands on instruction and social interaction.

    You will register for this event by paying $5 CASH EACH toward to poker pot (please bring cash to the event).

    EACH person playing will also need to bring an unopened bottle of wine around $20 (and under if possible, but really however much you want to spend) from the REGION OF SPAIN. (I recommend stopping by TOTAL WINE in Baybrook Mall area to inquire about this, they make it SUPER easy to find).

    Bottles, and playing cards will be spread out amongst HOST BOATS in Watergate Marina, we will supply a map, and information about the Spanish wines. 

    Informal tastings will be done at each boat

    (there should be several bottles per boat depending on how many people register) you can make wine notes on your information sheet, mark off each boat you visit, and grab your poker card.

    Afterwards, meet up at Waterford Pavillion B, turn In cards at 8:30pm once all poker cards are collected to announce winners, AND finish all the wines!
