Fun Highlights of Last Year’s Salt-Water Challenge RC Laser Regatta:

We hope that you will consider attending the 2018 Salt Water Challenge RC Laser Regatta scheduled for February 10-11th, 2018.  If you do plan to attend please e-mail us a copy of the registration form so that we may prepare for your arrival.  

Here are our favorite highlights from the 2017 Salt Water Challenge RC Laser Regatta.    If I missed anything please chime in……
1.) The Ladies Were in Charge:  

Very special thanks to Sylvia Dimayuga for being our RD and Josephine Camarillo for assisting with Race Scoring.  We were all in very competent hands that afternoon.

We must also give special thanks to Lauren Causey for her efforts organizing our most excellent lunch, handling registration and being our representative to the public which gathered to watch the event.

2.) Our Regatta Plays Host To A Wedding:

In the final hours of the Regatta a wedding party arrived and took over the Gazebo which overlooks our venue.  RD Sylvia Dimayuga would not let us play our starter tape during the wedding. Fortunately, the ceremony was brief and we were back to sailing in no time at all.  The young couple will forever have the memory of getting married at the Inaugural Salt Water Challenge – RC Laser Regatta.  And yes, we are in the back ground of all their wedding pictures. They even took one of our brochures as a keep sake.

 

3.) Rollercoaster Skateboarding Display by AMYA President:

AMYA President, Ray Seta, entertained the crowd with a rollercoaster style skateboarding display on the upper walk way of the sea wall.  Thankfully for the AMYA he walked away unscathed.  Click Here for Video of Ray Seta Skating On Sea Wall During Lunch.

 4.) Corpus Christi is Invaded by UFO’s:

Sailors watch from the Host Hotel Lounge on Friday night before the Regatta as Corpus was invaded by UFOs!!!!!!!!  Below is photographic evidence of the UFO’s flying in over the city and bay. 
 

5.)  The Rescue Boat Captain Needs a Rescue:

Our Rescue boat captain spends more time in the drink than in the boat.  In the photo below Stephen Gregory, AKA, The Drowned Wookie, wades to a safe swim ladder after rolling his kayak. 
 

 6.) Video From The Water:
