Richard Henry Dana Charity Regatta ®

What started as a group of yacht racers getting together to enjoy a day on the water and raise some money for local charities has grown into a fundraising effort that involves a wide variety of events and people from our community.  We hope you will join with us once again through event attendance, regatta participation, sponsorships, and donations to help us in reaching this year’s goal of raising $100,000 to support youth sailing for all.
