The first ever Bayside Regatta will benefit Rebuild Rowlett. The event is a 20-mile pursuit style race around Lake Ray Hubbard for sailboats and kite boarders. Day-long festivities begin with a BBQ rib cook off competition and will also include entertainment by Infinite Journey and JD Cobb Band, vendor booths, Kid Zone and Beer Garden.
The start and finish of the race will be to the south of Bayside Peninsula. This is the first event at Bayside since the $1 Billion development was announced last April. The Bayside Regatta is hosted by the Rowlett Chamber Foundation in partnership with the City of Rowlett and Bayside. Rebuild Rowlett is an organization that serves victims affected by the F4 tornado that occurred on December 26, 2015. Deadline to register for the race is September 30.
