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!
