Raising important operating funds for Easter Seals House Vancouver

The National Bank Easter Seals Charity Regatta, hosted by the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club is a PHRF handicap race with flying sails and no flying sails divisions and is pirate themed!  Crews compete in the Easter Seals Cup and then are judged on their costumes, decorations, and spirit in the return of the False Creek boat parade.  Boat Registration is $100 OR skippers and crew can seek out boat sponsorships at $250, $500, $1000, or more!  

Following the race everyone is invited to attend the post-race party on land in Hastings Mill Park where they can enjoy beverages from our sponsors, a waterfront barbeque, listen to live music, and bid on some great silent auction items. 

Produced by Easter Seals BC and The British Columbia Lions Society for Children with Disabilities, the National Bank Easter Seals Charity Regatta helps raise funds for Easter Seals House in Vancouver.  Families from all over BC and the Yukon stay at Easter Seals House while their child receives care and treatment at nearby medical facilities. Their visit may be as short as one or two nights, or as long as several months. No matter how long they plan to stay, all guests arrive to a warm, comfortable, cost-friendly environment that provides a perfect home away from home during a stressful time.
