History

Texas Youth Race Week began in 1991 from the Galveston Bay Tri-Club Regatta, but it traces its origins back to the first invitational Ragnot Regatta of 1961. TYRW was designated a US SAILING Junior Olympic event in 1997.

The 2017 Texas Youth Race Week marked 20 years as a US SAILING Junior Olympic event.
