9th Annual O. L. Shultz Open Regatta benefiting Alive Hospice : Harbor Island Yacht Club/OL Shultz Hospice Regatta

About Event

The Alive Hospice O. L. Shultz Regatta was developed in 2013 as a partnership between Alive Hospice in Nashville, one of the oldest non-profit hospice’s in the country, and Harbor Island Yacht Club. 

The event is one of 20 regional hospice regattas around the country as a part of  the National Hospice Regatta Alliance .

It is named in honor of former HIYC Commodore O. L. Shultz, who passed away in May 2013, and was served by Alive Hospice. The club’s history is rich with the stories of O.L. and his beloved racing boat, “Respite”, his trademark hat, and his special “basket-style” spinnaker rigging.


The motto of the Regatta is 

“We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails”.
