    Thank you for your interest in the 13th Annual Lake Norman Hospice Regatta, which benefited Hospice and Palliative Care Lake Norman! In combination with the Lake Norman Hospice Regatta Party, held in May at Peninsula Club, the Regatta and Party raised over $110,000 for HPCLN.

    47 boats attended the Regatta, where we had 2 great days of racing in 7-14 kts of breeze. A drawing of names from the class winners determined our Champion; Team Stella won that honor, under skipper Mark Gise. Crewmembers were Kelly Milliken and Mays Dickey. Mark was sailing Thistle 3951, and was sailing in memory of LNYC's Sean Murphy (as were many of the competitors).

    Class Winners:
    Division 1 (Spinnaker): Treez Decker, Huntin' Tripp (Tripp 26)
    Division 1 (Ultimate 20): Bill Wiggins, Running With Scissors
    Division 3 (Cruising Fleet): Wayne Mackey, Temptress (Luders 16)
    Division 4 (Thistle): Mark Gise
    Division 4 (Flying Scot): Peter Beam
    Division 4 (Highlander): Tom Raymond
    Division 5 (420): Avery Hale and William Bowden
    Division 5 (Optimist): Garrett Mergenthaler
