The real winners of the 2012 Toronto Area Hospice Regatta are; Perram House, a residential hospice providing end-of-life care in Toronto and the sailors that get to compete in a 'first class' one design racing event.

The program includes: nursing personal support, psychosocial and spiritual care placing residents in control of his or her life.
