Southern Sailing Club is Proud to Present the "Love the Lake" Open Regatta and Rally, Benefiting the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper.
September 11-13, 2015

As Southern Sailors, Lake Lanier is our home away from home, it’s where we race, play and relax throughout the year. Some of our fondest memories were made with our friends and family on the lake. So this year, Southern Sailing wants to show the lake some love by hosting a series of events that will raise money and create awareness for the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (CRK) and to do our part in keeping our lake clean and safe.

This year we are hosting an open Regatta and Rally to raise money for the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper. As part of the two day event based at Sunrise Cove Marina, we will organize a shore sweep to help create awareness.  Saturday night, live music will be provided at the marina clubhouse by George Price Band. The party starts at 5:30, dinner around 7:00 and music around 7:30. At the party, we will sell raffle tickets and have a silent auction raise additional funds.

Net proceeds from the event will be donated to the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper. Additional donations beyond the minimum registration fee are encouraged and that additional portion is fully tax deductible. 

                          (Shirts and tickets are in the on-line store in the link above)

  • Boat Registration is $65 until midnight Wednesday September 9.  Late registration is $75
  • Dinner tickets are $20 and include the party on Saturday Sept 12. 
    • Dinner Menu includes Cesar salad, smoked half-chicken, broccoli/french bean medley, macaroni and cheese, dinner roll and drinks.
  • Party tickets without dinner are $10.
  • You do not have to race to attend the dinner or party or to purchase t-shirts
  • Please place your order ASAP so we will know how many dinners to order.

For those not racing, the shore sweep will take place on Saturday September 12, from 2:00-4:00 pm.  
    • The shore sweep is open to kayaks, canoes, paddle boards and to people on foot. 
    •  Prizes will be awarded to the most successful sweepers (who make a donation to the CRK.)  
    • To sign up for the shore sweep, contact Christine at ssclovethelake@gmail.com
