Lakewood Yacht Club hosted the 30th Annual Shoe Regatta this weekend in Seabrook, Texas. As always, everyone had a great time. From the skippers meeting on Friday night to the awards on Sunday, it was a perfect weekend. The regatta launched in 1982 with each crew member of the winning boat in each class receiving a gift certificate for a pair of Sperry deck shoes, hence the name "Shoe Regatta."
This year, Quantum® customers took home most of the silver, or in this case, a new pair of kicks.
