Day On The Bay Regatta

Big Brothers Big Sisters

of Santa Cruz County

24th Annual
Day on the Monterey Bay Regatta

August 9th, 2015



On Sunday, August 9th, the Santa Cruz Yacht Club will host its 24th annual Day on the Monterey Bay Regatta to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Santa Cruz County. Fun, sailing, food, and music—it’s all on deck at the Regatta!

The event will be held at the Santa Cruz Yacht Club, at the Lower Harbor in Santa Cruz. Sailing takes place from 1-4 pm, followed by a catered barbecue from KISS Catering. Live music by Island Breeze will keep the party rolling.  There will be two great raffles and a silent auction at the event.  So much fun in one day!

There are many ways to join the fun.  No boat?  No worries!! You can enjoy the race as you sail on the Chardonnay II.  Don’t want to sail?  Then please join us for dinner and share in the fun of the music and raffles.  Call Mary at 831-464-8691 to order tickets.

Corporate Sponsorship Packages are available whether you register a boat or not.  And what is a race without the Skippers and Sailors to crew the boat?  Participants too can crew and take part in the fun.

All boats must fill out the Yacht Entry Form.  Once you have chosen how you would like to participate, please fill out the appropriate form and send it to us either via email to Mary, mail, or fax 831-464-8693.

The Day on the Monterey Bay Regatta is a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Santa Cruz County who have served the children in our community for 33 years! 100% of all proceeds stay local and go to Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring services.

Looking for a way to get involved with the community?  This is a great opportunity to volunteer for a great cause. If you would like to spend your day down by the bay, please contact us at 831-464-8691 and signup; we can always use your help.
