Skippers and their crews are preparing for the June 3-6 Hospice Regattas national championship on Lake Ontario, hosted by Rochester Yacht Club.

The competitors will race on Sonar sailboats in a round-robin series that will maximize time on the water for all teams during the three-day competition. The Sonar, a 23-foot one-design keelboat, races competitively with a skipper and three crewmembers.

Held annually since 2000, the Hospice Regattas national championship was the first sailing championship for charity in the U.S.
