Easter Seals Waves Regatta charity sailing event is being held on 23rd and 24th June 2012 at Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and will feature one weekend of competitive Keelboat and Dinghy racing in English Bay as well as the recreational Easter Seals Cup race. Almost 200 boats participated last year and this year event organizers are hoping for close to 300 boats to take part.

The post race festivities offer a chance for all participants to kick back and relax after the first full day of racing. Invite your crew and family to enjoy our barbecue while listening to live music, peruse our incredible silent auction and then cap it off with some great awards and prizing. Be sure to bring the kids as the festivities will also feature a bouncy castle and other great kid’s activities.
No boat? No problem! Experience the thrill of sailing, being a part of a crew, as well as the post race festivities by sponsoring a boat and/or skipper. There are three levels to choose from; $500, $1000 and $1500, each with their own benefits and charitable tax receipt.
All funds raised will help to keep the ‘doors open’ at Easter Seals House Vancouver. The house is one of three Easter Seals houses in BC. The Vancouver house provides a comfortable and affordable place for families and their children to stay while they receive medical treatment and diagnosis at Vancouver.
