Join us for the Regatta Fundraising Race for APDA!
Thursday, June 6, 2024 from 7-10pm

Elliott Bay Marina - 2601 W Marina Pl, Seattle, WA 98199
Race Starts for Sailors at 7pm / Party from 7-10pm

This is the kickoff race to the Downtown Sailing Series hosted by Elliott Bay Marina. This is APDA's 3rd annual Regatta Fundraising Race, with the goal of combining the enthusiasm of the sailing community while raising critical funds for the American Parkinson Disease Association, Northwest Chapter (APDA). Enjoy a fabulous evening on the water while supporting people with Parkinson's, their families, and APDA.  Reach out to family, friends, and colleagues to help raise funds that will help pay for local support services, education programs, exercise classes, resources, research, and more (fundraising for this cause is easy, we promise)!

Boater registration for the race is $150. There is no cost to register as a crew member but registration is encouraged. 

For Skippers and Crew:  Each person sets their personal fundraising goal – this is the amount you hope to raise through donations from your family, friends, and colleagues. Each Skipper/Captain also sets an overall fundraising goal for their boat.  The funds raised by individual crew members feed into the boat total.  Supporters can donate to individual crew members or make a general donation to the boat – either way, it gets incorporated into the team total.

The first 35 registered boats will receive a complimentary Regatta for APDA burgee.

The top 3 fundraising teams will be recognized during the event and receive a trophy. The Top Fundraising Team will be featured in our fall issue of the Parkinson's Pathfinder and recognized on our social media platforms.

After the sailing race, join us for the Regatta party! Celebrate with great food, drinks, and live music while you vie for raffle prizes and bid on fantastic auction items. 100% of proceeds go to APDA and we appreciate your donation.  

NOT A SAILOR but still want to help raise critical funds for local Parkinson's support, education, and research? Register as an "individual fundraiser" and follow the easy instructions to start fundraising! Sending out just a few emails or texts can make a huge impact. 

We rely on in-kind item donations to help make our event a success. We can use your help! Please fill out the Donate an Auction Item form if you would like to share a fabulous cabin or summer home, a unique experience, sports tickets or paraphernalia, restaurant gift cards, or other valued items.

Individual and Corporate Partnerships include VIP tickets to the event, logo on the website, social media recognition, day of VIP tickets and other great benefits. Contact Heidi Murdock at 206-798-3205 or to learn more.
