Thank you to all the families, skippers, sponsors and supporters who came out for the 2017 Easter Seals Regatta. Not only did we enjoy wonderful weather full of sunshine but we put smiles on the faces of kids with physical disabilities and their families’ too!
We appreciate the continued support of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club for being the Host Sponsor of the Toronto Easter Seals Regatta. We would like to thank Barrick Gold Corporation for being this year’s Activity Station Sponsor and to Maple Leaf Foods for being our BBQ Sponsor. A special thank you to the support of our Top Fundraiser, Andrew Szonyi, for helping to fundraise a total of $10,900.

For the past 27 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, July 30, 2017, 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.
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.
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 all. Tickets are available on the day of the event for $15 each or four tickets for $50.
