St Jude Children's Research Hospital-- Sailing for Hope Regatta 2012

posted Apr 23, 2012, 8:57 AM by DIYRA Administrator   [ updated Feb 4, 2015, 9:31 AM ]

The Kentucky Lake Sailing Club cordially invites you to become a St. Jude Sailor by setting your course for the second annual Sailing for Hope Regatta.  On May 18th, 19th and 20th make Lighthouse Landing Resort and Marina in Grand Rivers Kentucky your port o'call as we raise hope, awareness, and a pirate’s bounty for the children of St. Jude.

This year, in addition to the popular JAM A, JAM B and Spinnaker distance race, Sailing for Hope 2012 will feature a windward/leeward course to accommodate our growing number of one Design sailors.  A pre race party and a post race awards dinner will top off the weekend and add to the excitement.

This is a very special regatta with a focus on fun as well as fund raising.  We ask that our skippers and crew not only raise a sail for the children of St. Jude but raise dollars too.  Set up your own fundraising page and invite family, friends and crew to "Get on Board' by making a donation to support you as you sail for hope.

You don't have to race to become a St. Jude sailor because this year we wish to broaden our scope by engaging more of our non-racing shipmates.  For more information about Sailing for Hope, to register as a captain/crew, to become a sponsor or to find out how you can help go to http://sailingforhope.com or www.klsc.net  and turn your passion for the sea into something heroic.
