2016 Rochester Hospice Regatta Weekend

Welcome to the 2016 Rochester Hospice Regatta and Rochester Race Weekend Homepage

The Genesee Yacht Club is honored to host the Eighteenth Annual Rochester Hospice Regatta Weekend, Friday through Sunday August 19th-21st.

In addition to great days of sailboat racing, we are again looking forward to a full weekend of  summer fun starting with a Wine Tasting Party Friday evening featuring outstanding wines of the Finger Lakes Region, and the traditional Hospice Regatta Picnic with great food, musical entertainment and awards following Saturday's Hospice Regatta. Dates and approximate times for each event are shown below:

New this year...In addition to the traditional spinnaker and white sail racing around the buoys, we have added a Strictly Cruising event, a 10-15 mile coastal race for cruisers with little or no racing experience.  We hope this family oriented event will encourage cruising sailors to join in the fun of the Hospice Regatta, while helping to raise funds for Hospice and The Sunset House.

Whether you are a hard core racer, or a totally laid back cruiser, or something in between, please plan to join us for a memorable day of summer fun on the water and support a very special local charity and wonderful cause.
