February 8th, 2017 update: We have sold over 40 boat kits so far. We have teams in Dallas, East Texas and Louisiana planning on participating this year. We would like to export this concept to other areas of the country (world?). If you like our concept or would like to discuss how your sailing / yacht club could do the same thing, contact us at iinfo@longviewyachtclub.org

The 2016 event was held on Saturday, May 14th, 2016.

We had 26 boats compete with 46 skippers and crew, over  200 spectators with over 100 youth in attendance. The event raised over $12,000 for our charity Windridge Therapeutic Equestrian Center Of East Texas, Inc.
