October 7-9, 2022
Hosted by Fleet 71
The 2022 Hospice Regatta is coming up soon and preparations are already underway. We look forward to another great event and plan to meet/exceed our goal this year of $110,000. Our support is earmarked for patients at Hospice of the Upstate who can't afford end of life care. During the life of the regatta, we have raised over $1.06 million dollars! YOU ARE making a difference.
Friday Dinghy Night offers low pressure, friendly, small boat racing over the summer months at WCSC. Although several of the usual participants race regularly in the Centerboard or Keelboat Fleets, the majority do not. This is a testament to the relaxed atmosphere fostered at this event. Friday Dinghy Night is a great opportunity for non-racers and beginners to experience sailboat competition in a non-aggressive atmosphere. It's a great opportunity to learn!
For the after-race social, food of some sort (grilled burgers and dogs, pizza, maybe tacos) will be available, as will soft drinks and beer. Everyone chips in so Eric can cover the cost.
Participation last summer was very good, with a showing of 10 or more boats for all but a couple nights. Join your fellow sailors every other Friday (check the club calendar for dates) for fun, low pressure sailing with lots of free pointers. If you are new to sailboat racing, you might want to download and read the Sailing Instructions (a sort of how-to-participate guide). We hope to see you on the water!
