Annapolis Hospice Cup- Sailing Report

J/35 sailing at Annapolis Hospice Cup(Annapolis, MD)- Dan Phelps from SPINSHEET.com in Annapolis, Maryland, sent us this report on the recent Hospice Cup Regatta held on Chesapeake Bay:

"There are some great charity regattas in Annapolis, but one of the longest running, at 32 years, is the Hospice Cup Regatta which helps support Hospice programs in local communities around Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.  To date sailors competing in the Hospice Cup have helped to raise more than $7 million in support of these programs.

Last weekend, sailors were met with 18-22 kts of breeze, building ahead of a massive cold front that stretched from Montreal to the Gulf of Mexico.  J/105s and J/35s were representing well.  Of course, beyond the weather being perfect for these sailors to come out and support a great cause, that breeze also made for great photos.  More here:  http://spinsheet.smugmug.com/SpinSheet/2013-Events/2013-Hospice-Cup.
