Sail for Hospice

Friday June 18 - Saturday June 19, 2021

Sodus Bay Yacht Club is pleased to announce that it will host this year's Hospice Regatta. Proceeds will be split to benefit Oswego Hospice, and the two hospice homes in Wayne County - Pines of Peace, and the Laurel House. The regatta will include kayak races, radio-controlled boat racing, sailing fun races, music, good food and comradery. The winner of the buoy regatta will be eligible to attend the 2022 National Hospice Regatta. Key to our fund-raising efforts will be a virtual and in person raffle. The winner will not need to be in attendance at the drawing. Please continue to check back on this page often and join in on the raffle. We would like to thank Larry Sill, who will serve as PRO. We will be emphasizing appropriate social distancing, use of open air sheltering, masks etc. based on the prevalence of (or lack thereof) Covid at the time of the sail.

We look forward to you making our weekend complete, so please check out all of our activities and
