Carol Becker Woman's Regatta
OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE 23RD RUNNING OF THE CAROL BECKER REGATTA
You are cordially invited to participate in the 2019 Annual Carol Becker Woman at the Helm Regatta on September 28, 2019. The regatta will be sailed on Upper Galveston Bay. This race features a Woman at the Helm during the entire race including the start preparation and start of the race.
The Regatta derives its name from the former Texas Association of Social Sailors TASS member and avid woman sailor Carol Becker who tragically lost her life in a boating accident in July 28,1995. The Cup was a Deed of Gift to TASS in 1996 in recognition of the Woman at the Helm sailor exhibiting excellence in sportsmanship and proficient sailing skills in accordance to the TASS Race sailing rules set forth in the NOR. This tradition has been carried forward for the past 23 years with women racers enthusiastically participating and celebrating the spirit of Carol and racing. This year as TASS embraces WOMEN IN SAILING, we hope that you will join us in the Regatta and After-Race celebration.
The After-Race Party is dedicated to our vibrant colorful Buzz Lay who was also lost in the boating accident with Carol. Buzz was known in the TASS circle as the “Drum Beater of all Things Fun”, and most often seen at events with the brightest and craziest neckties imaginable. Hence, there is no other way to celebrate Buzz than to TIE ONE ON. The After-Race Party theme Tie One On For Buzz will once again hold the best tie worn contest in his honor. The regatta and party are how TASS chooses to celebrate that bright stars in the distant sky for our friends.
