CANCELLED: 24TH Annual Veterans Wheelchair Regatta

The annual PICYA Wheelchair Regatta for the benefit of veterans is rapidly approaching. This will be the 24th annual event for all veterans, many who are confined to wheelchairs. PICYA and yacht clubs from all over California, including the San Rafael Yacht Club loan their power boats and skippers to this effort to get our veterans out into fresh air, sunshine, and a chance to network with their veteran brothers. Each veteran also receives a gift bag of needed or just fun items.

Everything is free of charge for the veterans and their families/guests. We have veterans from VASF (Ft Miley), Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Yountville, and many other locations bussed or driven into Alameda. Typically, 250 to 325 veterans and an equal number of volunteers to help attend. The Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda, Richmond Fire Departments, and others loan their firefighters to the cause to assist in getting the wheelchairs from the pier onto the boats and back onto the pier at the end of the cruise.

Here is a brief description of the day:

“Day on the Bay” 2 ~ 3 Hour Cruise

BBQ ~ Picnic Lunch ~ Live Music

If anyone would like to donate to this great event (any amount would be great) please:
