Have you got your entry in yet , only 3 weeks to go before the start of the 2013 Heaven can wait charity sailing regatta
If you have not got your entry in, you need to do it now for the following reasons:
·We need to get the handicaps right and the earlier we know who is competing, the better the chances of us getting them right.
·Our promotional material highlights the opportunity to have different divisions for different classes where there are enough entries to support a separate division. In order for us to create separate divisions, we need to what the potential classes are early.
·You have the best chance of winning the ‘virtual fund raising race’ in support of the Hunter Region of the NSW Cancer Council.
By now you would be aware that this regatta is a fund raising regatta in support of the Hunter Region branch of the NSW Cancer Council. Research and assistance programs supporting breast and prostate cancer patients are well supported, and while research into the other forms of cancer - bowel, lung, brain, pancreatic and liver, have improved the survival rates, support for recovering patients – a lot of whom are men, are not at the same levels, and so our focus this year is supporting the domestic assistance programs for recovering patients with these sorts of cancers.
So, get on board now with your entry into one of the most unique charity sailing regattas in Australia and start fundraising for a great cause.
