April 7-8, 2018
Grapevine Sailing Club and the Grapevine Junior Race Team welcome you to Lake Grapevine and our annual Silly String Regatta. We look forward to your joining us for a great weekend on the water. The Club Meeting room is located on the Docks at Scotts Landing Marina, 2500 Oak Grove Loop S, Grapevine, Texas.
Trailers and Boats. Competitor boats may be unloaded and kept along the shoreline, there will be an area for each Laser/420 and Opti’s. Trailers may be stored on the upper level of parking area. The Grapevine Police Department has been notified and will help to keep watch and run extra patrols in the park over the regatta weekend. We will assign numbered dolly tags as boats are launched on Saturday, competitors simply need to remember what number they are assigned to aid in their return. The marina is in the process of building additional dockage which will unfortunately be “in the middle” of our typical launch area. The anchors and supplies in the area can be a hazard, so please be careful and keep watch over youngsters, we don’t want to see anyone hurt. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Coach Boats. Trailers shall be stored in the trailer lot. Slips for coach boats, and dock access cards can be obtained Friday evening 6-9pm or on Saturday morning. James Gordon is your point of contact. Please do not just “find a spot”! The Marina works with us to provide slips making for a more organized and secure event, plus the docks have controlled access. There is a cement boat launch ramp on the Southeast corner of the Marina parking lot, please use this to launch all Coach Boats. This will help you as it is not near the participant launch area and will expedite a safe Sunday loading.
Accommodations. There is a camping area in the park within proximity (but not walking access) to the Marina. The Gaylord Texan and Great Wolf Lodge are both nearby with rooms available for the weekend. A quick search will reveal many other hotels in the area at a variety or price points.
Big Daddy’s Restaurant is located on the dock if you need food at other times during the day. There are many other restaurants in the Grapevine and Southlake area ranging from fast-food to a high end dining experience. Shopping at Grapevine Mills and Southlake Town Center is also just a short drive away.
Grapevine Sailing’s Commodore and membership, along with the Junior Team, their parents and coaches all welcome you to Silly String 2018.
