The International Twelve Metre Association (ITMA), in full support of the people of Ukraine, is honored to endorse Race For Ukraine, a fundraising regatta sailing around Conanicut Island in Narragansett Bay.

The Race for Ukraine will be held on Saturday, June 4th, 2022 on Narragansett Bay. Hosts include Ida Lewis Yacht Club, Herreshoff Marine Museum, and the Bristol Yacht Club. There will be a start off Bristol for northern Bay participants and another start off Newport for southern Bay sailors.

The event is open to all sailboats with PHRF ratings and there is NO entry fee. However, please consider a generous donation here.

Spearheaded by Newport's 12-meter fleet, the event was envisioned by Commodore Steve Eddleston- the owner of WEATHERLY. He commented, "the most important competition will be the fundraising drive with each boat vying for top donation bragging rights. I'm hoping this event will demonstrate that sailors everywhere stand with the people of Ukraine."

Official event charity- Heart to Heart International (HHI)- will track the donations of each boat individually, enabling the broadest base of donors to "back their boat" with online contributions. Even if you can't sail, please consider a donation here.

All proceeds will go directly to Heart to Heart International (HHI), a global humanitarian organization whose mission is to improve healthcare access around the world by ensuring quality care is provided equitably in medically under-resourced communities and disaster situations. This Charity Navigator top-rated 5-star organization has already sent 3 mobile medical facilities (Clinics-in-a-Can) and $13 million in medicines and medical supplies to Ukraine.
