A Day on English Bay in Support of Easter Seals Vancouver

2015 BC Easter Seals Regatta


On July 18th, 2015, the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club proudly hosts the National Bank Easter Seals Charity Regatta, the primary fundraiser for Easter Seals House Vancouver, a home away from home for out-of-town families to stay with their children receive much needed medical care. 

A number of boats have already registered for this year’s Easter Seals Cup race, with regatta organizers still counting on a few more boats to register. The National Bank Easter Seals Regatta is the largest charity regatta on the West Coast and a great opportunity for boat owners to enjoy a fun day on the water while supporting a good cause. The Regatta is a PHRF handicap race with flying sails and no-flying sails divisions. The Regatta is pirate-themed and will include a parade through False Creek. Prizes will be awarded for ‘best crew spirit’ and ‘best costume.’ 

2015 BC Easter Seals Regatta Kids

Not a sailor, not a problem. Join the Regatta’s growing list of organizations, businesses and individuals who have registered to sponsor a boat or skipper. Boat sponsorship, starting at $250, is a great way to raise your corporate profile within the community, recognize employees or invite out clientele, receive a charitable tax receipt, all while giving back to a worthwhile cause. 

Everyone is invited to attend the “Festival in the Park” BBQ in Hastings Mill Park. It will offer a chance for everyone to kick back and relax after a fun day of racing. There will be a barbeque, beer garden, live band and a fabulous silent auction. Bring the kids; there are activities for them too. Tickets for the BBQ and event information

are available at 604-808-8517 or www.eastersealsregatta.ca.

Ron and Pat Reder started out in October 1984 across the road from where they are right now on the Bayfield River in Bayfield ON. The store front was about 10 x 20 and the rest of that side of the building was a stock room, wood finishing room, then behind that was more back stock and the lunchroom. Expanding every few years for the store front, then moving over to this new building five years ago, this year with Adam, Shelley, and Holly are carrying on the business.
