Re: houston to corpus christi

Here's a write up of the race we did last fall - along with pics. The oil rigs are a bit scary at night. Other than that - it's a really nice run.

Re: houston to corpus christi

When are you going? Would you like a buddy boat? I've done that run. The TMCA also does that run a couple of times a year, with dozens of boats.

How is the boat coming along? Now is some good calm weather. A little hot though.

Re: houston to corpus christi

Interesting this post is at the top of the page, I'm contemplating the same thing and was just about to post a thread asking the same stuff. I'm considering buying a boat in the Houston area since there are more there than here in Corpus, then sailing it down. Just in the planning stage, but I like to have all logistics worked out before undertaking any project.

What are thoughts about offshore vs ICW? What about time underway in average conditions? Other tips and tidbits?

That was an excellent account of your trip and really enjoyed it. Hopefully I can get on one of the runs one of these days.

Also miss Austin and 6th Street.
