Oswego Yacht Club has been selected to host the 2017 Hospice National Regattas Championship August 17-20 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,” said OYC commodore Mike Anderson. “OYC is excited to host the HospiceNational Regattas Championship and continue the tradition of this great event,” he added.
