    Do you call it Red Fish or Redfish? The fish is known as redfish, and the island, according to the charts, is Red Fish.

    Either way, it's time again for Kite Fest!

    We will be anchoring up on Saturday, September 26th, to enjoy the first cool days of fall and fly some kites. Kite judging will take place between 3 and 4 on Saturday afternoon, followed by an evening bonfire on the island. Come usher in the beginning of the end of 2020!

    If you need details on the route, or help with setting your anchor, send a text to Lamy Chopin at 832-579-4070 and I will fill in the details.  Fly your TMCA burgee.

    • Cedar Bayou

    Come join us on this wonderful cruise up Cedar Bayou, bayou entrance just north of Morgan’s Point.

    To maintain social distancing we’ll have a floating dinghy happy hour Saturday afternoon instead of a large gathering on 1 boat.

    This is a great opportunity to practice anchoring overnight in a very protected anchorage and also practice your piloting skills. There is commercial traffic on the bayou so keep your eyes peeled and utilize your AIS. Many of the fixed markers are in shallow water so stay in the marked channel in the deeper water. The shallowest portion will be at the entrance to the anchorage, just stay in the middle and you should be fine. The entrance is at least 6’ if you’re in the middle.

    The south side of the anchorage is deeper further to shore than the north side so that’s the side we favor when we anchor. We typically sit to the current, parallel to shore. We use 1 anchor instead of 2 and haven’t had any issues. There are small fishing boats that use this cut to get to the bay so don’t be surprised if they zip through. No traffic at night.

    No registration required for this event.

    TMCA Cruisers...

    If all goes well this cruise will be the second Allen's Landing Cruise of 2020, a feat that TMCA has never before attempted!

    As I write this in early January there are no details to convey as yet, but the photo below gives you an idea of what it looks like when we are there!

    Please check back to this write-up later as we get closer to fall.

    At the end of August, we all had our eyes to the sky and our ears to the forecast, and ultimately, most of us prepared ourselves and our boats for the coming of Hurricane Laura.  In the end, it was a good practice run for what may come to our marinas one day.  We dodged a bullet and were grateful!  Unfortunately, our friends in Lake Charles took a major hit and well over a month later, they are still cleaning up.  Port Arthur Yacht Club (PAYC) is hosting a fundraising event to benefit the LCYC.  TMCA will be chipping in by having a cruising event which will be similar, although MUCH smaller in scale, to our always popular Spring Fling at Pleasure Island Marina.  LET’S HELP OUR NEIGHBORS JUST A SHORT DRIVE/CRUISE AWAY!

    The cruise will be 3 nights, October 23, 24, 25 for $100/slip at the Pleasure Island Marina. 

    You will have the opportunity to purchase (in advance) Friday and Saturday night catered dinners for $25 each, Saturday and Sunday light breakfast for $10 each, and Saturday sack lunch for $20 each.  Children’s prices (under age 12) $10/dinner and sack lunch, No reduction for breakfast.

    An outside dining and gathering area will be set up under a large tent, which is also where a Friday DJ will be set up and a Cajun live band will perform on Saturday evening. 

    Keg beer and rum (sponsored by PAYC) will be available with donations accepted.

    Since TMCA’s annual wine tasting has been cancelled, TMCA will be pouring assorted wines both nights for donations.  Please come prepared for “CASH ONLY” donations at the event.

    Kona Ice will be on site Saturday afternoon and available for purchase.  A portion of sales going to LCYC.

    Wristbands will be issued to attendees purchasing meals.  Guests will need to check in at PAYC Friday evening or Saturday morning to receive them. 

    PAYC reserves the right to verify the age of any individual wishing to visit the alcohol tents.  Only attendees age 21 and up will be permitted.

     Land yachts are encouraged to participate!  Local hotels available in and around Port Arthur.

    There is a limit of 65 boat slips available to TMCA as there are going to be other boats coming in for Two Step and Jitterbug Regattas.  More details on that will be coming from PAYC if you are interested in participating.

    Our deadline for registration is October 16.  There will be choices regarding the food service to be made at the time of registration.  The slip rental is for 3 nights inclusive of slip, water and power. 

    Come out and show TMCA’s always generous spirit…in addition to having a great weekend.  We’ll reminisce about past Spring Flings and dream of the next one…to be planned soon!

    Friday night dinner – Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya,  Coleslaw, Roll w/butter, Dessert, tea, lemonade, water       

    Saturday Lunch – Sack lunch to go includes 8-9” Hoagie with Cheese (Ham, Turkey or Roast Beef), wrapped pickle, assorted chip bag, apple or orange, sweet treat, tea, lemonade, water

    Saturday night dinner – Chicken and Sausage Gumbo,  Potato Salad, Crackers, dessert, tea, lemonade, water
