RACE FOR A CAUSE
The Mount Sinai Sailing Association has sponsored The American Cancer Society Regatta for many years. We are very proud that our Regatta is the second longest running Charity Regatta in the United States. During that time we have raised over a half a million dollars for the American Cancer Society. The ACS Regatta has been nationally recognized and has been featured in Sailing World magazine among others.
For this year's Regatta, we'd like to offer special thanks to two of our sister clubs for their support of this event:
With the help of local organizations like MSYC and PJYC, this MSSA event will be successful, and can continue for years to come. We truly appreciate their commitment and support!
Our most recent ACS Regatta was held on Saturday, September 17, 2021, with a rollicking post-race party immediately following. A total of 35 yachts were entered in 5 divisions, but more importantly MSSA was able to raise over $10,000 for the American Cancer Society. There's no better way to spend a day on and off the water!
We will also encourage online fundraising via our American Cancer Society Virtual Regatta! This is the best way to ensure we have a banner fundraising year. You don’t even have to be entered in the actual regatta — just set up a team and raise money for this worthy cause. Note that there is no entry fee required to participate in this virtual regatta!
To set up your "team", just do the following:
If you prefer, you can also enter the virtual regatta by just sending (via email) your boat photo and a brief paragraph that you want donators to see to Bob Hall, and he will have it put up on the ACS page.
