National Hospice Regatta Alliance
Tim Sladden and his team from Rochester, NY, began the final day of racing at Hospice Regattas Championship 2014 in first place overall. By finishing first twice - and no worse than fourth in any race - on Sunday, they took the Championship trophies and yellow flag home to the shores of Lake Ontario.
Gene Lovelace and his wife, Cindy, were vacationing in St. Petersburg, FL, in April 2013 when they noticed a fleet of sailboats racing on Tampa Bay. “It’s a hospice regatta,” another vacationer told them.
Supporting charity sailing regattas that raise funds for and awareness of nonprofit hospice services in local communities is the mission of the National Hospice Regatta Alliance.
Each year, hospice regattas generate more than $1 million net proceeds for local hospices, thanks to the efforts of hundreds of sailors and individual and business sponsors. In total, the Alliance’s member regattas have raised more than $21 million for this purpose.
"Inspired by competition, Enhanced with compassion"
Our mission is to support charity sailing regattas that raise funds for and awareness of non-profit hospice services in local communities.
