Sailing for Scholars Regatta / Dyckman Marina, Inwood
With racing all weekend long, teams compete both on the water and to raise the most money in support of Hudson River Community Sailing's innovative youth development and maritime access programs. Winners are announced at a post-event reception at The Hudson. Donate below to support your favorite team or racer! Not sure which team to support? HRCS's youth racing team, the Sea Dragons, is looking strong this year!
Interested in fielding a team? Teams sign up to raise $4,000 (J/24) or $8,000 (J/80), get professional coaching, and compete in the two-day regatta. Contact Maeve Gately at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
