J/22 Midwinters Sailing Texas-style!

J/22 sailing one design (Houston, TX)- Houston Yacht Club and J/22 Fleet 6 are excited to host the 2018 J/22 Midwinter Championship, March 16-18.

Houston YC’s warm friendly clubhouse nestled in Shore Acres, TX is a great place to have fun on and off the water. High temperatures average in the 70s and lows around 55. Fleet 6 is looking forward to this event and is planning to show off Texas hospitality. Facilities at the club include launching cranes, floating docks and plenty of paved trailer parking.

The harbor is open to the bay with quick access to the race area, and chop is usually only 1 to 3 feet on sunny, warm Galveston Bay. The racing will be fiercely competitive, however, it will be a fun regatta with no crew weigh-ins required. Registration begins Thursday, March 15, with racing commencing Friday through Sunday. 35-plus teams are one of them!
