The Toronto Easter Seals Regatta was held on Sunday July 7, 2013.
2013 marked the 24th anniversary of the Easter Seals Regatta, a day of friendly sailing and boating competition. This is a fundraising event that brings sailing, boating, and sponsors together in support of kids with physical disabilities.
The regatta was hosted by the RCYC and 'Pirates on the Water' was the theme for this year. Entertainment for the kids included a treasure hunt, a harbour tour around the sailboats and a barbecue on Snug Island. The sailors part was a race around the harbour.
Atreides (Bruce Brown and Debbie Baker) sailed in the regatta. Transport for several kids and their families was provided by Fire Escape (Deb and Silvio Conte) and Storm King (Captain Malcolm Kirk).
The pictures say it all. Big smiles on all the faces. Great day on the water.
