Hosted by Lakewood Yacht Club along with J-Boats Southwest, the J/Fest Southwest Regatta is a relatively new event that is becoming a popular tradition among the J-Boat owners in Houston, Clear Lake and Galveston. It brings as many as 70+ J-boats and avid competitors from around the country.

While this year the J/Fest Southwest Regatta celebrates its eighth annual event, the J-Boats, which come in a variety of styles and sizes designed for cruising, daysailing or racing is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

The calm winds and moderate climates along the Texas Gulf coast provide ideal conditions for skippers and crewman to display their racing prowess, and affords spectators and guests an appreciation of fall racing, which most of the country does not get to enjoy.

Our gracious sponsors help make this a premier fall event each year. Lakewood Yacht Club, with its host of member volunteers, not only manages the race but provides post-event festivities that include live entertainment, a Cajun shrimp boil and great drink specials.

Located about halfway between Houston and Galveston, Seabrook and its surrounding area offer an array of activities for families to enjoy. Space Center Houston, the Kemah Boardwalk, Armand Bayou Nature Center, the Seabrook walking trails and San Jacinto Monument and Battleground are all just minutes away.
