June 5&6 – Hope Regatta – River Dunes (not a SCOO event)
Update 4/23/15
Greetings members of SCOO and ODC,
I trust you have seen the “Save the Date notice”. This is why.
For the past four years, during the first weekend in June, the Oriental Dinghy Club and River Dunes joined forces to hold a regatta to benefit a national charity. This year they have chosen to focus that effort to benefit a local charity. On June 6, they will host the first ever Hope Clinic Regatta. The Hope Clinic provides free medical services, dental care, and medicine to low income adults in Pamlico County. Each dollar raised at this event will provide $18.50 in free health care services to its patients.
We bill this as a FUNDRAISER with some fun boating thrown in. We are going to cater to both the sailboat and the motorboat communities. There will be a Pursuit Race (PR) for the sailing vessels. This style of racing is a simplified format which requires you only to have a sailboat. Racing experience is not necessary. There will also be a simplified Predicted Log Contest (PLC) for motorboats including sailboats using only their auxiliary engines. A PLC requires captains to estimate in advance the navigational challenges and times over a specified course. Onboard instrumentation will be limited so as to depend on skipper skills. An onboard observer (spouse perhaps) will have the only timing device available and will score the estimate.
The schedule will have you arrive at river Dunes on Friday June 5th, compete on Saturday, and join the dining and entertainment festivities through Saturday night. The entry fee includes
2 nights at the docks at River Dunes including electrical service. More details will be forthcoming shortly. Start your planning for a weekend of fun

Update 4/14/15
The Hope Regatta (a non-SCOO event) will be held on June 5th and 6th, 2015 in beautiful River Dunes, Oriental, North Carolina. It will feature a pursuit race for sailboaters and a predicted log contest for power boaters.
The event website is “http://www.hoperegatta.com”. The Hope Clinic is a nonprofit, free medical clinic providing care to low-income, uninsured adults. The event will raise funds for our services – each dollar provides $18.50 in free medical care to our patients!
