Sailing Race to Raise Money for Nonprofits
Three local organizations – Calvert Hospice, Prince Frederick Rotary Foundation and Southern Maryland Sailing Foundation – will benefit from this year’s Sail for Youth, which is slated to take place on Saturday, Aug. 25 off Solomons Island.
The Sail for Youth 2012 event will start at Zahniser’s Yachting Center, featuring a Bloody Mary Wake-Me-Up breakfast from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Small boat racing begins at 10:30 a.m. followed by big boat racing at noon. Cruising Races and a fun cruise will begin at 1 p.m., starting off Solomons boardwalk. At 1:30 p.m. the Fun Cruise check-in begins off Solomons boardwalk for sail or motor boats to negotiate a special course up the Patuxent River.
“This is a fun way to raise money for three important Calvert County Non-profits,”Â stated Stovy Brown, Sail for Youth 2012 chairperson. “This year’s focus on the youth programs of Calvert Hospice, Prince Frederick Rotary Foundation and Southern Maryland Sailing Foundation is exciting because we want to support these organizations for the services they offer Calvert County youth.”
