Toronto Easter Seals Regatta, hosted by the Royal Canadian Yacht Club (RCYC)
Sunday, August 19, 2018
RCYC Launch, 150 Cherry St., Toronto
For the past 28 years, the Toronto Easter Seals Regatta has been raising funds for Easter Seals Ontario and giving kids with physical disabilities a chance they don’t often get, the opportunity to ride the waves on the Toronto Harbour. On Sunday, August 19, 2018, the Toronto sailing community will gather at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, where cruisers will take Easter Seals families for a great day on the water.
This year, the Regatta is taking place as part of the Royal Weekend at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. Don’t forget to come prepared as the Pirates are taking over!
Cruisers are encouraged to help families fundraise. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 cruiser fundraisers and to the best dressed cruiser crew!
Please visit EasterSealsRegatta.org to register your boat or to sponsor a skipper.
Easter Seals kids and their families will have the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon sailing on the Toronto Harbour thanks to the support of the RCYC and the generosity of cruisers, skippers and boaters, who demonstrate their commitment to helping kids with physical disabilities by collecting pledges, donations and sponsoring boats.
Pirate Life is back! The Pirates will once again be taking over the Toronto Harbour!
The Regatta post-party will feature a delicious BBQ, silent auction and family fun, taking place on RCYC’s Snug Island. All Regatta participants receive complimentary tickets, but the post-party is open to everyone. Tickets are available on the day of the Regatta.
