Like Sailing? Come Out To The Hospice Cup

| September 19, 2010 | 0 Comments

Living in Annapolis, sailing is a huge part of our weekly lives. Why not combine sailing with some charity?

The Hospice Cup is a regatta taking place in Annapolis Harbor, and raising money so that hospice care can continue throughout Maryland. Taking advantage of the spectacular winds that Annapolis in September can offer, the Cup is on Saturday, September 25, 2010.

You don’t have to be a racer to get in on the action. Spectators can jump on Watermark Cruises‘ Catherine Marie and enjoy a catered lunch, open bar, live commentary, and an appearance by Olympic sailor Liz Filter. The boat will leave from the David Taylor Research Center at 10:30 am, and will head out to the race circle so the racing can begin around 11:00.

Sailing will likely end around 2:30 pm, but the fun doesn’t stop there. The Hospice Cup is hosting a shore party in front of the Atria Manresa, that big white mansion that you can see from the Naval Academy Bridge. The shore party will feature live music, raffles, sailor awards, and a catered buffet and full bar with options ranging from oysters to sushi, and will last until dusk falls on the Severn River.

If you’re a sailor, you can still register your boat to sail on Saturday. The cost is $40 and up, depending on whether you register late or have a USSA membership. Find the notice of race here.
