2013 HEAVEN CAN WAIT CHARITY SAILING REGATTA EXPECTED TO RAISE $35,000 IN SUPPORT OF THE HCW CHARITIES
The 2013 Heaven Can Wait Charity Sailing Regatta was once again, an outstanding success in both fund raising efforts and participation. The funds raised are still being tallied, but are expected to be in the order of $35,000 with the majority of the funds going to the Hunter Branch of the NSW Cancer Council and a smaller amount of the funds going to Marine Rescue for their on water support during the event.

WHAT IS THE HEAVEN CAN WAIT CHARITY REGATTA?
The Heaven Can Wait 24 hour race was conceived and inaugurated by Lake Macquarie resident, keen sailor and cancer survivor Shaun Lewicki as a major annual sailing event on the lake, to promote sailing, the Lake Macquarie/Newcastle/Hunter region – and to raise funds for cancer research.
Entries for the 2013 Heaven Can Wait Charity Yacht Regatta will soon be open; please check back here regularly.
Remember too that crew, family, friends and colleagues can support any boat competing in the 2013 Heaven Can Wait charity yacht race, raising funds for men's cancer research and support. All funds raised are donated to the Cancer Council NSW, along with up to $5000 going to Marine Rescue NSW.
Don't forget, as well as the on-water race, there's a virtual fundraising race. Please help your chosen boat and crew get to the front of the fleet! In 2012, we raised nearly $30,000 for men's cancer research and support programs. We aim to beat that target this year and help beat the scourge of cancer!
