The 150 nautical-mile race begins at the Flagship Hotel Pier in Galveston and follows the Texas coast to Port Aransas over the course of 2 days and 2 nights, when the night sky is dominated by the beautiful harvest moon.  It's the perfect opportunity to gain offshore sailing experience or add to your sailing certifications.  Learn more about the history of the event by clicking here.

In addition to a trip down the coast, sailors will enjoy a barbeque banquet in Port Aransas, Race Finish Party and Rum Mary Party!

Everyone is invited to participate as a crew member; however we are also offering ASA 103/104 Combo (Basic Coastal Cruising & Bareboat Chartering), and ASA 106 (Advanced Coastal Cruising) during this event.*
