2013 HEAVEN CAN WAIT CHARITY REGATTA DATES ANNOUNCED
The Heaven Can Wait Charity Regatta for 2013 will move from the October Long Weekend to the weekend of November 16/17, 2013, with the Charity Dinner to be held on the preceding Friday Night - November 15, at the RMYC Toronto. The move from the October Long Weekend was precipitated by traditionally bad weather and the corresponding desire to have the event in better weather conditions. There was also a strong desire to have the race scheduled around a full moon which would make the overnight race far more inviting. Click here for the Notice of Race. Go to Latest News and/or Documentation for more information.
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! If you would like to support this fund raising program by supporting any of the fund raising efforts of the boats participating in the Heaven Can Wait Charity Sailing Regatta, you can by going to this Everydayhero link - http://www.everydayhero.com.au/event/HCW2013/community.
