At 1100 hours on Saturday August 17 the starting gun will sound to begin the 7th Annual VanderLeek Cup Hospice Regatta. Come on out to join your fellow sailors for a worthwhile, fun filled day on the water. As in past years we will have two courses available: A windward/leeward course for the diehard racers and a triangular course for the “Comfort Cruisers”.
Three or four spectator boats will be out to watch our antics on what is meant to be a fun time for all. Of course we are also raising money for the Hospice of Holland Tulip Tree Fund. The effort of past Regattas has raised a total net amount of $180,303. An added incentive is the winner in the Windward/leeward division will be invited to the National Alliance Hospice Regatta next April in St Petersburg, Fl. With ice cream and awards after the race, what’s not to like?
