OCEANSIDE — Two days of racing are on the horizon for sailors who plan to compete in the 14th annual Charity Regatta which gets people on the water and raises money for hospice patients.
Oceanside Yacht Club will host the regatta Aug. 6-7 at the club located at 1950 Harbor Drive, Oceanside.
The two-day event commences with sailboat races starting at noon on both days and spectator boat boarding at 11 a.m. Racers and the public can enjoy after race parties where live music will be provided and food and drink will be available for purchase. A silent auction and raffle will be held on both days.
The Grand Prize Raffle Drawing includes a seven-day Holland America Cruise for two to the Caribbean, Mexico or Canada/New England or Alaska. The cruise drawing is $20 per ticket. The public can join the fun “on the water” and board a luxury powerboat for a $100 per person donation to The Elizabeth Hospice.
The Elizabeth Hospice has provided hospice care to adults and children in the San Diego and South Riverside counties since 1978 regardless of their ability to pay.
The entry fee to race in the two-day regatta is $50 and daily Post-Race Parties are open to the public free of charge beginning at 3 p.m., Aug. 6 and 2 p.m., Aug. 7.
