The 32nd Annual Mt. Sinai Sailing Association American Cancer Society is the longest running charity regatta in the United States. We have a "virtual race" with some of the local boats for Sponsorships and fundraising. If you can't come down to MS Harbor tomorrow mid day, but still want to help in the battle for this great cause - you can quickly and easily sponsor a boat in the race and make a donation to the American Cancer Society. http://www.crowdrise.com/Akula is our boat.
