2019 Winners of National Hospice Regatta Championship
A Hospice Champion on Sea or Land!
They race for hospice care!
The 2020 Hospice Regattas Championship was originally scheduled for June 4-7 in Charleston, SC, harbor. Following the recommendations of the CDC and other agencies, we are postponing the 2020 Championship until later in the year. We want to keep all involved with the Championship safe.
Alliance volunteer board members have met online with our regatta partners from the College of Charleston (sailing venue), Hobcaw Yacht Club (social activities venue), and Roper St. Francis Hospice Cottage (benefiting non-profit Hospice) to explore possible alternatives.
As of today, the National Hospice Regatta Alliance and partners are looking at mid-November 2020 for new dates for the 2020 Championship.
Hospice regattas proclaim “sailing for others” as a call to engage people in raising funds and awareness for hospices that serve their communities — recognizing that the heartbeat of sailing is local racing.
As the editor of Scuttlebutt Sailing News put it, “our sport grows from the bottom up, and the entry points are in the harbors and lakes that are near us.”
We are optimistic that many hospice regattas will still be held in 2020.
We will announce the new dates for the 2020 Championship as soon as we can.
We will also publish a revised Notice of Race and an updated schedule of events, along with links to register for the event.
