Sail for Hospice

Sodus Bay Yacht Club hosted the 2021 Southeast Hospice Regatta. Proceeds were split to benefit Oswego Hospice, and the two hospice homes in Wayne County - Pines of Peace, and the Laurel House. The regatta included kayak races, radio-controlled boat racing, music, good food and comradery. We would like to thank Larry Sill, who served as PRO.

What an amazing event to benefit hospice care in Wayne County. A big thanks to Fran Doyle for organizing the event given that Oswego Yacht Club could not host this year as they have done in years past. We enjoyed SBYC's first ever RC boat regatta thanks to member Chris Hubbell's know-how and enthusiasm. Music by Eric Will on Friday night was a hit on the patio. Saturday kicked off a very hot and slow start to the race before the marks were moved to the bay for the official start. The evening ended with a member-made BBQ chicken dinner and awards. This year, the overall winner was Terrapin crew!
