Welcome to 2020 Hospice Turkey Shoot Regatta

    
2020 HOSPICE TURKEY SHOOT REGATTA

 Changed to One Day Event, October 3

Responding to the COVID-19 guidelines and to offer a safe and fun outlet for sailors, the Board of Directors has decided to hold a modified regatta.  The event will be a one-day pursuit race held on Saturday, 3 October 2020 on the Rappahannock River, with no land activities planned at present.  To minimize the demand for crew, spinnakers will not be allowed. Also, no water taxi service will be available but slips, moorings and an anchoring area on Carter Creek in Irvington will be available to those boats which choose to come on Friday evening or wish to stay later to enjoy the local surroundings. 

This is the silver anniversary of the regatta’s association with and fund-raising efforts for, local Hospice services. The Board wanted to continue our tradition of holding the Regatta, keeping expenses to a minimum and raise money for Hospice. In addition to the 25th Anniversary of the Hospice Regatta is also the 30th local Turkey Shoot Regatta, started by Chairman Emeritus John McConnico and Chuck Harney.

In line with the shortened event, the registration fee has been reduced to $55 which includes the popular commemorative hats, T-shirt and skippers’ bags.  Photos of finishing boats and the awards will be available in a contact-less scenario.  At this time we plan to do skippers meeting and award ceremony electronically.
            
Our goals this year are to encourage everyone who raced last year to come back again, to defend their titles in some cases, have a safe time sailing, to support Hospice Support Services of the Northern Neck and Riverside Hospices Agencies. We encourage everyone to be generous with donations (on the Yachtscoring site when you register.)

Payment, merchandise ordering and donation functionality has been activated on Yachtscoring.com
