For the past 27 years, the Toronto Easter Seals Regatta has been raising funds for Easter Seals Ontario and giving kids with physical disabilities a chance they don’t often get, the opportunity to ride the waves on the Toronto Harbour. On Sunday, July 30, 2017, the Toronto sailing community will gather at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, where cruisers will take Easter Seals families for a great day on the water.
Toronto Easter Seals Regatta Highlights
Easter Seals kids and their families will have the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon sailing on the Toronto harbour thanks to the support of the RCYC and the generosity of cruisers, skippers and boaters, who demonstrate their commitment to helping kids with physical disabilities by collecting pledges, donations and sponsoring boats.
The Regatta post-party will feature a delicious BBQ, silent auction and family fun, taking place on RCYC’s Snug Island. All Regatta participants receive complimentary tickets, but the post-party is open to all. Tickets are available on the day of the event for $15 each or four tickets for $50.
