Update: The SCENE Sailing Team’s J/24 is on quite a roll as of late. Skipper Stuart Lindow and crew won Series 2 of the Wednesday Night Sailboat Races and is also now the top rated J/24 racing in the Texas Regatta Circuit following races at the Houston Yacht Club, Fort Worth Boat Club and Dallas Corinthian Yacht Club. The boat and team will be in Corpus Christi for the fourth stop in the Texas J/24 Circuit, the Surfin' Safari hosted by the Corpus Christi Yacht Club. Then it is back on Clear Lake for more of the Wednesday Night Races. Come out and cheer on the #99 boat!

Earlier Update: The SCENE Magazine has teamed up with other local businesses to sponsor veteran sailor Stuart Lindow’s J24, for the 2013 Wednesday Night Sailboat Races. The SCENE Sailing Team  finished April with a first and two second places finishes and is currently in second place overall after getting off to a rough start of the season with a DNF in race #1. Make sure to come out an cheer on the #99 boat. Its the one with the Carefree Boat Club logo on the spinnaker.

Featured Sponsor: Crazy Alan's Swamp Shack. The Swamp Shack has a laid back and casual atmosphere and the vibe is festive and fun. Anywhere is a good seat in the house, and there is even a rooftop deck with a killer view, especially for Kemah’s Friday Fireworks during June and July. Come sit at the bar with friends and order a mythical “Swamp Juice” drink. Or if your friends are not available, come out to the Swamp Shack anyway, have a seat by the alligator, and make some new friends during an extended happy hour. The staff offers wonderful customer service and owners Paul Latour and Alan Franks want to make sure your experience is an enjoyable one. So does the Cayman alligator up front. Make sure you stop by and tell him hello. The menu features some of the best cajun seafood, steaks, burgers and chicken in the Kemah area including crawfish, shrimp, gumbo, boiled crabs, oysters, alligator and more. Head on over and check the Swamp Shack out!
