2016 Hospice Regatta - SUCCESS!
We did it! We raised over $82,000 dollars. Woooooooooo! Thank you to everyone who attended, supported, donated and helped us reach and exceed our goal this year. Without your help we would not have been able to reach the goal.
The event was a light air affair with all fleets able to get in races on Saturday and Sunday, thanks to great PRO work. Randy Lenz is the 2016 Champion. He won the PHRF D fleet and then won the overall championship. Randy will represent us in the National Hospice Alliance Regatta. Complete results are posted here.

Pickens County STEM program visits WCSC
Over 1000 second grade students from every elementary school in Pickens County School District launched their 2016 Sailboat Regatta with a visit to the Western Carolina Sailing Club last week!
The Sailboat Regatta is a part of the district's STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) Curriculum. Students learn the basic principles that make sailboats work, such as thrust and drag. Then they build their own model sailboats to race at their schools.
Thank you to the many WCSC members who volunteered for the three day event to show students how much fun STEM learning and sailing can be! Special thanks to Dan Marett, Tim Crane, Johanna Curtiss, Terhune Sudderth, Bryon Hicks, Patrick Hopp and Ronnie Ashmore for making this program a success!
