The Notices of Race for the 2012 Heaven Can Wait Charity Regatta on Lake Macquarie, north of Sydney, for the Labour Day long weekend on September 29-October 1 have now been issued – and this year’s regatta incorporates three events.
The three events within the 2012 Heaven Can Wait (HCW) regatta – the seventh year the regatta has been held – are:

1. The full classic HCW 24 hour race from 11 am on September 29 to 11 am on September 20

2. The One Lap Dash around the entire course, and also starting at 11 am on September 29, and finishing back at Royal Motor Yacht Club Toronto during the afternoon

3. A new 12 hour race, starting at 11 am on September 29, and finishing at 11 pm that night.

As with the 24-hour race, the 12-hour race is a 'distance over time' event, with competitors logging their positions using their on-board GPS as of 11 pm, and reporting it to the race committee.

Both the 24-hour and 12-hour races will require boats to comply with YA Cat 5N safety standards, while the One Lap Dash is a Cat 7 event.

The NORs for all three events can now be viewed on the HCW website at www.heavencanwait.com.au and online entry is now active..

Competitors will be able to enter into all three events, just a single event, or any combination of them.

Run in conjunction with the Royal Motor Yacht Club Toronto, the 2012 Heaven Can Wait Regatta will again raise funds for men’s cancer research and support programs – with all monies raised through entries going to the Cancer Council of NSW, plus an amount to Marine Rescue NSW.

Over the past two years, the race has raised over $75,000 for these causes.

Entries for the 2012 HCW Charity Regatta are now open on the event’s website at www.heavencanwait.com.au (simply click on the ENTER HERE button).

As with the previous years’ events, entry fees have been kept to just $50 for the 24 Hour Race, $50 for the 12 Hour Race and $30 for the One Lap Dash, $70 for participants in any two events, and $100 for participants in all three.

These fees apply to each boat that raises at least $500 (24 Hour Race/12 Hour Race) or $200 (One Lap Dash) in sponsorship via the HCW EveryDayHero charity fundraising website which will be live in just a few days time.

The entire entry process – which is via the Heaven Can Wait website at www.heavencanwait.com.au – is done online, and includes the automated set up of an EveryDayHero donations page for each yacht which enters.
Crew, family, friends, work colleagues and other supporters can then donate money to individual boats – with a 'virtual' race also held for the boat team that raises the most money.

For further information, please go to the HCW website at www.heavencanwait.com.au.
