Lakewood Yacht Clubs Bay Cup I

Lakewood Yacht Clubs Bay Cup I

After a 1-hour postponement due to low water levels, 47 boats in Lakewood Yacht Club's annual Bay Cup I regatta got off to a rousing beginning at 11:30. Winds out of the NW ranged from 10-20 knots with an occasional 9 thrown in just for fun. As the day progressed, the winds strengthened to 18+ with maximum gusts in the low to mid 30s. The 9-boat PHRF A fleet included a Melges 24, four J/109s, two J/105s, one J/80 and a Beneteau 10R. The 11.74 mile course was divided into 4 legs with a reaching start, a run to the second mark, and two beating legs to the finish. Kevin Hayes/Mike McGagh's Melges 24 Mojo took first with Bee Bednar's J/105 Stinger coming in second and Al Goethe's J/109 Hamburg finishing third. The warm Texas sun and strong winds made for an exciting day on Galveston Bay.   Results
