Two days of great one design racing at the Toronto Area Hospice Regatta ended with $15,000 being presented to Perram House of Toronto, a palliative care residence that provides end of life care to individuals that have a limited life expectancy.

Regatta chair Richard Reid, a passionate supporter of Perram House thanked and praised all of the volunteers that organized and ran this top notch regatta. The funds from this regatta are part of the 1.2 million dollars raised this year by 25 Hospice Regattas in Canada, the United States and the Virgin Islands.

All aspects of the regatta were superbly run. On the course, Principle Race Officer John Weakley again showed strong leadership in keeping the courses fair and the race management first class. The National Yacht Club again demonstrated why it is renowned for running great regattas. The regatta social committee gave the racers a fun filled Saturday night with the kilt and hula hoop contests and then capped off the evenings entertainment with the energy packed band Fiddle Stix.
