Oswego Yacht Club has once again been selected to host the Hospice National Regattas Championship August 16-19, 2018 on Lake Ontario using J/24s, thanks to the efforts of OYC leadership and the J/24 District 7 Governor. OYC also hosts the Oswego County Hospice Cup Regatta in June each year to benefit local hospice services.
Thirteen J/24 owners in District 7 have generously agreed to allow use of their boats for the Hospice Regattas Championship, which is scheduled for the week following the J/24 District 7 Pennant Series regatta at Oswego. Additional boats may become available for the Championship fleet.
“We are very grateful to the J/24 District 7 fleet for loaning boats to the Championship again this year,” said OYC commodore Dan Mather. “We are excited to host the HospiceNational Regattas Championship at OYC and to continue the tradition of this great event,” he added.
