The second annual Texas J/105 Invitational Regatta is scheduled for April 2-3. The format is based on the pioneering Bermuda J/105 Regatta wherein local crews consisting of a local owner and two of his or her crew team up with a non-Galveston Bay or Dallas (Fleet 16 and Fleet 17) skipper and two of his or her crew for two jam-packed days of sailing fun. Weather permitting, 10 races with five helmed by local owners and five by non-local owners are to be sailed over the two-day period. Six invitees have already accepted invitations, but there are still boats available. If you are interested in an invitation or would like to join in with your own boat, contact Uzi Ozeri (uzio at hotmail), Bee Bednar (bee at panoramatech dot com) or Bill Lackenmacher (Bill at lockeprotective dot com).
