Sail for Kids Sake is a fun race to gather sailors, both racers and non-racers, to participate in an event focusing on demonstrating the beauty of sail while benefiting local youth.

FORMAT: Designed for sailing vessels, the format will be a simple course mapped out by each yacht club, with the end (finish line) being the downtown waterfront off Murphy’s the Cable Wharf. Afterwards, dockage will be provided by Develop Nova Scotia, in and around the Bishops Landing area. The race will be Bermuda Start format using GPS time, based on each boat's handicap, to balance the varying speed and size factors, and making a closer finishing time for all.

Each Boat will pay a $50.00 registration fee, and each team is asked to raise additional funds to support the charity. Trophies will be presented to the top finishers, and a specialty trophy to the team that generates the highest fundraising total.
