BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
EVENT DATE: Aug 15, 2015
w/ virtual crew Michael Vesey, Brian Galvin, Dan Duffy, Dan Burke, F. William Tilt, Lee Kehler, John Wozniak and many more then the boat could really hold!
The MSSA ACS is the 2nd oldest charity regatta in the United States. Akula has sailed with folks with family who have died of cancer, affected by cancer or are battling cancers now. This is the only charity the captain and crew of Akula are actively involved in.
Please flip us (Akula) a few bucks for the cause. We have won (and so has our vitrual crew of cancer fighters and survivors), placed 2 or 3rd in every outing since 2007 After years of lifeguarding and outdoor sports i have had a few skins cancers removed and undergone pre-cancer skin chemotherapy.
For last year's Regatta, a total of 35 yachts were entered in 5 divisions, and the on-the-water competition was followed by a rollicking post-race party. But more importantly, MSSA was able to raise over $19,000 for the American Cancer Society.
Please join us on Saturday, August 15, 2015 for this year's Regatta and the awards party at Mount Sinai Yacht Club to follow. There's no better way to spend a day on and off the water!
