Invitation from our Event Chair

Dear Potential Sponsor, 

Dana Point Yacht Club and the Richard Henry Dana Charity Regatta® have a rich and proud history of supporting South Orange County’s charitable organizations.  Since the creation of the event in 1999 we have supported worthy causes, including the High Hopes Head Injury Association, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and the Ocean Institute.  For the past 17 years the Charity Regatta has raised both critical funds and community awareness for these organizations and we look forward to continuing the tradition in 2016.

We are pleased to announce that the Dana Point Harbor Youth Foundation (DPHYF) is the beneficiary for the 2016 Richard Henry Dana Charity Regatta®.  The foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization with a mission of supporting the next generation of sailors by providing the opportunity for all youth to pursue the sport, regardless of financial circumstances.  DPHYF serves as a unifying force, bringing together harbor organizations, including yacht clubs, the Ocean Institute, Mariners Sea Scouts, high school sailing teams and others, towards the common goal of supporting youth sailing.  No youth should be left behind because he or she can’t afford youth sailing.  Our goal is to make sure they aren’t!

DPHYF knows that youth sailing is much more than a recreational or competitive activity.  By participating in sailing programs South Orange County’s youth are able to experience an innovative form of physical fitness while learning leadership, social and communication skills and becoming good stewards of the ocean’s resources. The future of sailing is now and DPHYF is leading the way.

We need your help to further the important work of the Dana Point Harbor Youth Foundation.  As a sponsor of the prestigious and highly anticipated Richard Henry Dana Charity Regatta®, you will receive positive media attention at not just one event, but at a series of regatta-related events over a four-month period.

We have included a detailed breakdown of the benefits you will receive with your tax-deductible donation.  No matter which level you choose to give, your donation will provide much-needed scholarships, equipment and funding to grow the next generation of sailors.

Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to partnering with you.
