Harvest Moon Regatta

Harvest Moon Regatta, Texas Gulf


Join us for "A Howling Good Time!"

October 9-16, 2019

The event once dubbed “A Howling Good Time” by Cruising World is back!  Founded in 1987, the annual Harvest Moon Regatta event has grown from just under 20 boats to over 200—and we are proud of our South Coast Sailing Adventures teams who have placed in the top 3 winners for their class over the years!  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.

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