The 25th annual “Harvest Moon Regatta” is set to sail into Port Aransas during none other than the “harvest moon!” The regatta sets sails from Galveston on Thursday, October 13 with more than 200 boats expected to arrive in Port Aransas beginning in the early dawn hours on Friday, October 14.
This year marks a special anniversary for the regatta – with several racers making the trek each of the 25 years in the history of the race. The regatta, which is the largest port to port race in North America, will sail offshore in the Gulf of Mexico 150 nautical miles from Galveston to Port Aransas.
Gulf Shores Condominiums is proud to announce that our sponsored artist, Carl Jara, won first place in the Master Solo division of the 2011 SandFest!
Here’s what they had to say:
“This 18-mile-long barrier island, connected by a causeway and 24-hour ferry to Corpus Christi, offers wildlife and wild life at party-hearty Port Aransas. Trolleys ply the historic honkytonk town, filled with down-home pubs and upscale galleries. Wide bay- and Gulf-side beaches, lined with dunes, seafood shanties and marinas, hikers, seashell collectors, and sandcastle architects (100,000 spectators ogle hundreds of entries at SandFest, the nation’s largest sand-sculpting competition, every April). Aquatic activities abound: surfing waves off the jetty, kite-boarding off protected sandbars, casting for trophy tuna and tarpon. Tournaments lure international competitors, who spin tales of the ones that got away in fun funky bars. More than 500 bird species vacation here, dolphin frolic in the channel, and coyote roam Mustang Island State Park.”
