National Bank Easter Seals Charity Regatta
Easter Seals Cup & the New 'Pub Cup Challenge'
Saturday, July 13, 2013
The Easter Seals Cup and the 'New' Pub Cup Challenge is a great opportunity for sailors of all levels to get out on the water with their boat and crew for for a fabulous day of sailing and camarderie in English Bay while supporting a great cause like Easter Seals House Vancouver.
All skippers are required to pay $100 registration boat or recruit a boat sponsor for a minimum $250. There are 4 levels of boat sponsorship and benefits to choose from, check them out here.
Both races will feature 2 divisions; racing and no flying sails. Our 'New' Pub Cup challenge is a great way for skippers to reach out to their your local favorite 'establishment' and get them involved as a boat sponsor. This category will participate in their own 'race to the bar'. Awards will be presented to the Highest Overall Fundraiser and fastest boat in each category.
'Yo, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum' marks the the piratey theme of this Regatta. All boats will participate in the traditional parade through False Creek. Boats will be judged for best Pirate decor and crew spirit. Braggiing rights will awarded at the After Party at Hastings Mill Park (adjacent to the RVYC) .
