On August 24-25 the Olivia Constants Foundation (OCF) will be holding a Team Race Regatta & Fundraiser up at the Severn Sailing Association (SSA) in Annapolis. Many of us in PRSA (especially the Lightning Fleet) know the Constants family and the tragic story of Olivia’s death two years ago. This event is a great opportunity to try your hand at team racing (a clinic is included!), raise some funds for a great cause, and celebrate the spirit of Olivia through sailing and camaraderie.
Those of us in the Lightning fleet have a District regatta up in Havre de Grace, MD, on the 24th and 25th, so most of us won’t be able to make the team race event. But don’t let that deter you — boats and training are provided, the racing will be great and the celebrations after the racing will be even better! The folks up at SSA are an awesome bunch, and the weekend will surely be a fun time. All you need to do is bring a skipper/crew pair and a great attitude!
I’ve posted the regatta announcement and the NOR below, as well as a link to the OCF itself in case you would like more information about Olivia’s story and the work of the Foundation. You can also find the NOR and registration information on the SSA website.
