MSSA 39th Annual American Cancer Society Regatta

The Mount Sinai Sailing Association has sponsored The American Cancer Society Regatta for many years. We are very proud that our Regatta is the second longest running Charity Regatta in the United States. During that time we have raised over a half a million dollars for the American Cancer Society. The ACS Regatta has been nationally recognized and has been featured in Sailing World magazine among others.

Our most recent ACS Regatta was held on Saturday, September 21, 2019, with a rollicking post-race party immediately following. A total of 35 yachts were entered in 5 divisions, but more importantly MSSA was able to raise over $20,000 for the American Cancer Society. There's no better way to spend a day on and off the water!

Please join us on Saturday, September 26, 2020 for this year's Regatta and the awards party at Mount Sinai Yacht Club to follow.
