Help out a great cause and have a great time while you’re at it, racing sailboats and rubbing shoulders with some of the biggest names in the sport as part of the Offshore Sailing School’s 50th anniversary Celebrity Pro-Am Regatta.
Set to take place January 8-10 at the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina in Fort Myers Beach, Florida, the regatta will be sailed in a fleet of one-design Colgate 26s to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Entry fees include three nights of accommodations, a BBQ dinner preceding the event and other meals, and an orientation and tune-up the morning of the first day of racing.
Among the many rock stars taking part will be America’s Cup winners Gary Jobson and Ed Baird; three-time Star class Olympic gold medal winner Mark Reynolds; America’s Cup and Whitbread veteran Dawn Riley; and of course, Offshore Sailing School founder Steve Colgate, an Olympic and
America’s Cup veteran with multiple national championships to his credit.
