2017 Sperry Challenge Results
Every year members of the Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Club organize the Sperry Challenge. With help from other yacht clubs in the area, this fundraising event is dedicated to the AQVA, allowing the physcially disabled to sail.
The 5th edition of the Sperry Challenge presented by BNI was held at the RStLYC in Montréal on Aug 26! It raised $25,000 in support of local sailors with disabilities, bringing the 5 year total to over $100,000!
The event consisted of a regatta (22 entries), a cruise open to the public (courtesy of cruise skippers), a cocktail dinner, silent auction and dance party. The event was a great success, and couldn't of been done without the amazing help of club members, volunteers, and guest.
The organizing committee wishes to thank Helly Hansen, Sail Canada and Canadian Yachting Magazine for auction items and, most importantly, their new title sponsor, BNI Canada, whose director is none other than Olympic and pro sailor Kai Bjorn.
Save the date for next year’s BNI Challenge on August 25, 2018!
