Dear Friends,   On, Saturday, May 17th, more than 60 sailboats from throughout South Florida will gather off the shores of Fort Lauderdale Beach to compete in the 2014 Hospice by the Sea Regatta!

Help support Hospice by the Sea, Inc. by entering your boat in the 4th Annual Hospice by the Sea Regatta.  Teams who enter the Regatta will vie for Top Finisher in one of the six (6) racing classes:

·         PHRF – PHRF of SE Florida Certificate required

·         ARC* – Assigned Rating Class (See Note Below)

·         ONE DESIGN – Approved One Design boats conforming to their respective class rules may compete in a separate racing class provided five (5) or more boats complete registration by May 9, 2014.  The Race Committee may assign ratings to One Design fleets

·         MULTIHULL – MASF Rating Certificate required (see One Design exception)

·         CRUISING CANVAS* - For yachts not ordinarily raced.  Only working sails allowed (i.e. main, jib, mizzen).  NO spinnakers or specialty sails allowed.

·         BEACH CAT – The Race Committee may assign ratings to multihulls without a current  MASF Rating Certificate 

*Note - Race Committee will assign ratings based on information supplied with entry.

Family and friends can support their favorite sailors and Hospice by the Sea by entering the Regatta’s Fundraising Challenge.  When they raise funds on behalf of your boat (and team), they become eligible for a number of different awards.

The Post-Race Celebration and Awards Ceremony will take place at the Lauderdale Yacht Club (LYC), beginning at 6:00 p.m.
