WHY: Since 1978, Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County has served the terminally ill and their families with physical, emotional and spiritual support—at absolutely no charge to any individual, any government agency, any insurance company. This year, in communities from Diamond Point to Joyce, VHOCC is serving an average of 128 patients per month. In addition to offering these individuals round-the-clock nursing care, hospice caregivers provide respite for families. To ensure that respite care remains available, the Sequim Bay Yacht Club has raised funds each September with a regatta. In the past quarter century, the club has contributed more than $360,000 for respite care.

WHO: Last year, in addition to sailboat races, “Reach and Row for Hospice” inaugurated a competition for anyone with an oar or paddle—rowers, kayakers, canoers, paddleboarders. More than 55 joined us for a morning full of fun that helped the club raise more than $31,000 for its 2018 Hospice contribution. We hope you’ll be with us this year!

Anyone high school age and older–from anywhere in the greater Puget Sound area–is welcome, as an individual, as a group, as a team. This year we’re racing on Sunday, Sept. 29.

MORE INFO: Coming soon! We’ll keep you posted, and we look forward to seeing you on the water!
