SATURDAY, JULY 13th, 2013
Registration is open for the National Bank Easter Seals Charity Regatta, hosted by RVYC in support of Easter Seals House Vancouver, which provides accommodation for families while their children receive medical care at Vancouver’s Children’s Hospital. The regatta is a PHRF handicap race with flying sails and no-flying sails divisions. The Regatta is pirate-themed and crews will be judged on their costumes, decorations and spirit in the return of the False Creek boat parade.
If you register by July 5th you will be eligible to win a unique opportunity to crew aboard Skipper Derek Hatfield’s Volvo 60 Amer Sports One in the 2014 St. Maarten Heineken Regatta.
Also, every skipper who pays and/or recruits their own boat sponsor will receive a large Stormtech Sail Bag (retail value $75) compliments of National Bank.
Registration is $100 or requires a minimum $250 boat sponsorship; other levels of sponsorship also include $500, $1,000 and $1,500. For every $500 raised through boat sponsorship, your rating will be adjusted 1 point slower!
Pub Cup Challenge
Skippers and crews can also recruit their favourite licensed establishments to compete for the “Pub Cup” in the inaugural “First in Bar” race. Pubs will sponsor boats and compete to see which establishment can raise the most in support of Easter Seals House. Pub-sponsored boats will be scored separately as well as overall in the regatta.
