Planning on sailing the 2018 Texas 200 this year. Any one else interested? We had a nice group of 6 islands sailing with about 60 other boats last year.

Interesting. I haven’t even gotten my boat yet so too early to commit, but this looks cool. I assume it’s more of a cruise than a race, eh? Not sure about camping in Texas in the summer tho... even on the water!

Hi Jay. The camping is not so bad. Nights cool off enough to make it bearable. I would wait till you have at least a year of sailing the island or two under your belt before taking one of these trips o . Lots of things can and do go wrong. Ask me how I know. :D

Count me in! Heading back for my fourth tour of the Texas coast. This is my favorite trip of the year, except for the 1,200 mile drive. Well organized, great group, and WIND! Leave early each morning, use that Hobie speed, and you should be at the campsite by early afternoon before the wind starts howling. Now if I can just figure out how to keep up with the TIs in my AI... Perfect trip for a Hobie.
