The weekend of September 30 -
October 2 Rappahannock River Yacht Club, Yankee Point Racing and Cruising Club,
and Rappahannock Yachts will host the 21st annual, Hospice Turkey
Shoot Regatta. The Regatta will again be sailed on the Rappahannock River off
of Carter's Creek with shore side activities taking place under the big tent at
The "Turkey Shoot" is a
fund-raising event that celebrates the beauty, traditional spirit and pure joy
of sailing competitively in a classic sailboat regatta. The goal of the regatta
is to raise much-needed funds for local Hospices so that they may continue to
make a difference in the lives of the people they touch, our friends and
neighbors living in the Northern Neck area.
To qualify for participation a
sailboat must be a monohull built from a design that is at least 25 years old.
You do not have to be a racer to participate. No rating certificate, no
problem. If you don't have a phrf rating the regatta committee will assign
one. This is a "fun" race that welcomes sailors of all skill levels.
Again this year wooden boats will be given their own class.
They will be starting together and competing directly with one
another. To find out more about the wooden boat class contact one
of the race committee members
