Regatta for the Cure
In support of Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Atlantic 

Regatta for the Cure is an annual sail boat race to raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - Atlantic Region. The third annual regatta will be held at the Shearwater Yacht Club on July 16, 2011.  Over $38,000 has been raised in the past two years after expenses. Our goal this year is to raise $20,000.

The regatta is a day of celebrating those who are fighting and those who are survivors of breast cancer. After the completion of the race through Halifax Harbour, prizes will be awarded for place finishers and best boat themes. A breakfast, lunch and supper BBQ’s, a dance and silent auction will also take place throughout the day.


Each boat that wishes to participate in the regatta will be given pledge sheets for their crew members to be sponsored. The entrance fee for the regatta is $100 but will be waived if $120 is raised through pledges.

You can register as an individual or team online at .  You can also make a direct  donation to the regatta.

You can also visit our organization on Facebook.

All of the money raised will go the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - Atlantic Region.
