Register now for ‘row’ portion of 2019 Reach and Row

Rowers and paddlers can now register for Reach and Row for Hospice, Sequim Bay Yacht Club’s annual fundraiser for Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County set for Sept. 28-29.

Established more than a quarter century ago as a sailboat race, Reach and Row last year was expanded to include a competition for anyone with an oar or paddle, including rowers, kayakers, canoers, paddle boarders and the like.

More than 55 participated last year in the new, 5-mile open water race on Sequim Bay.

This year, sailors race on Saturday, Sept. 28, with other craft competing on Sunday, Sept. 29.

Anyone of high school age and older from anywhere in the greater Puget Sound area is welcome to compete individually or as a team.

Registration information for rowers and paddlers is on the yacht club website at sequimbayyacht.club/reach-for-hospice.

More information about the sailboat race registration will be available soon at sequimbayyacht.club/hospice-sailing.

All funds from registration fees go to the 501(3)(c) nonprofit hospice organization.

The 2018 Reach and Row raised more than $31,000 for respite care for VHOCC patients throughout the county, bringing the yacht club’s total contribution to the hospice organization’s respite care program to more than $360,000.
