Note to self……. Bring all your rigs! You have been warned!

Launching Area at Venue: During normal outing for the Club’s regatta over the last three years, we have not ever experienced water lapping over the concrete sidewalk giving us a dry launching area. And with any kind of luck this should be no different unless we experience an unusual high tide due to any adverse weather in the Gulf of Mexico. Be prepared if needed with water type shoes if needed. You can view venue pictures on the Coastal Bends MYC’s website listed below.
