New Sanctioned AMYA Region 5 Club

All,

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the AMYA and Region 5 to announce and Welcome the newest Region 5 Model Yacht Club. The Coastal Bend Model Yacht Club, AMYA #334, is a collaboration of effort from three seasoned Skippers we all know here in Region 5. Jim Smith, Mike Causey, and Eric Gregory have formed a new Club in the hopes of now building on and with the great sailing condition of the Coastal Bend. Jim being from Rockport, Mike being from Corpus Christi, and Eric being from San Antonio, the hopes is to bring RC Sailors from the wide Coastal area down there and start with some monthly sailouts at a new Lake that Jim Smith’s employer has purchased and has long term goals into developing the land and area to maybe some RV and Camping site. The Lake is centrally located on Hwy 35 just outside of Aransas Pass and with the predominant Coastal winds down there should be a location of some great sailing year round for them. The Coastal Bend Model Yacht Club will be hosting their first Victoria Regatta in February 2015. Mark your calendar for a new Victoria Regatta in February. They will be releasing a website with their monthly schedule sailouts soon and they will be inviting anyone that wants to come down for a day sail to make maybe a road trip for a day and join them!
