Great Texas was held 2003-2018!  A Great Run for a Great Race.

After 16 consecutive years, the Great Texas is now taking a well earned rest!  When is the next Great Texas?  Not known at this time.  Our fleet has gotten older and turned to trimarans!  So, given this situation, we have put future races on hold.  

However, we still do the Dash from Surfside to Galveston.  Go to for more information on the dash!

Team Great Texas 300, skipper Steve Piche and crew Juke Ball, win the 16th Great Texas 300!!! They were supported by team managers Jorge Trevino and Jonna Rose Ball. They are holding the overall Great Texas trophy and the fastest elapsed time trophy. Steve Piche is the founder of the race and it took him 16 tries to finally win the race he started. It was the 11th time that Steve and Juke had completed the race together. They had good speed all week, never broke down or flipped and escape through tough surf at the day 3 start while other team could not get out. Congratulations to Team Great Texas 300!!!

The Great Texas Race course!  4 legs over 4 days.  300 miles of world class sailing up the Texas coast.
