The Preliminary Notice of Race is now available. Note that this year we will be including a Dinghy / Sailboard Dash over a shorter 5NM (approx) course. More details will be available in the lead up to the regatta.

This will be the 15th running of the Heaven Can Wait Charity Sailing Regatta - assuming that the Covid19 gods are kind to us, and we certainly hope you will be able join us. We will make a final decision at the beginning of November 2020 as to whether the regatta will go ahead depending on the circumstances and outlook at the time, but at this point in time, our plan is to proceed with all the necessary arrangements as if it is going ahead, so please reserve the dates in your diary.

The Heaven Can Wait Regatta is no ordinary regatta. It is not only a event that involves some pretty challenging - even endurance level racing, but it is also a major fund raising event for the Hunter Branch of Cancer Council NSW and specifically their Home Help Program. The Home Help Program provides domestic support to both recovering and terminal cancer patients who - because of their condition, are unable to fulfil their domestic responsibilities. A small amount of the funds raised also goes to Lake Macquarie Marine Rescue who provide on water support during the running of the regatta. So, by entering this regatta, you will not only have a great sailing experience, but you will also be doing the right thing and helping a charity that helps so many other people in need.

Pre-race entertainment will once again be provided by well-known Hunter region aerobatic pilot - Paul Bennet of Paul Bennet Air Shows. Those who participated in last year's regatta will recall Pauls stunning aerobatic work over the waters in front of the Royal Motor Yacht Club Toronto and I am sure he will be equally as stunning for the 2020 regatta.

Once again, The HCW Regatta will be a part of Lakefest - a celebration of aquatic activity on Lake Macquarie from Saturday February 13 through Saturday March 6 and details of the Lakefest events will be posted on the Lakefest website - www.lakefest.com.au as they are confirmed. There will be lots of activity on the Lake, so why not come up early and participate in some of the other events planned for Lakefest.

We look forward to seeing you on the 19th for the Charity Dinner and / or the 20th for the Regatta.
