Wheel Chair Regatta

'17 Wheelchair Regatta

 

 

  
21st ANNUAL PICYA MARGO BROWN WHEEL CHAIR REGATTA 

 
September 23, 2017 at Encinal Yacht Club
 

 

PICYA is hosting its 21st Annual Wheelchair Regatta. This event will once again provide veterans, many confined to wheelchairs, with the rare opportunity to experience a power boat cruise on the Oakland Estuary and San Francisco Bay along the San Francisco City front.

On their return, our guests will be treated to a picnic luncheon and entertainment on the grounds of Encinal Yacht Club. Most of our honored guests are U.S. Veterans residing in Northern California Veterans’ Homes and Hospitals.

In order to make this event successful, powerboat skippers/owners are needed to donate their time and boats to host one or more guests aboard their vessel.

Volunteers from each of our PICYA member clubs will make this a most memorable day for our guests, and for those donating their assistance as well. Many volunteers are also needed ashore to assist in welcoming, boarding, preparing and serving lunch, and entertainment.  It will give you a great feeling and gives veterans a fantastic day.

We need kitchen crew, hosts (Wheelchair pushing), and tax deductible donations.  There is something for everyone to do.

The MBWR has a limited amount of space for disabled veterans that are being cared for outside the VA hospitals.  For disabled veterans that would not otherwise be able to enjoy a cruise on the Bay or the camaraderie of his fellow veterans, please refer them to Linda Blue.
