Heaven Can Wait Sailing Regatta

Heaven Can Wait is an annual sailing Regatta hosted by the Royal Cruising Yacht Club Toronto, on Lake Macquarie and raising money for cancer support services. Centennial Coal has been a sponsor of this annual event for several years.

The event was launched at a charity dinner. The guest panellists for the evening were Liesl Tesch (Paralympics Gold Medallist), Tom Burton (Laser Olympic Gold Medallist and Tom Addis (Navigator for Perpetual Loyal – Hobart Race winner and now record holder).  The guest panellists were interviewed by high profile ABC sports journalist Helene O’Neil.

The Regatta saw 52 boats compete in a variety of categories with one category being an epic 24hour event.  Organiser of the Regatta, Melvyn Steiner (Vice Commodore of the Royal Motor Yacht Club Toronto), announced the event was again a huge success raising money to provide support services to those who are battling cancer. There were lots of weary sailors and smiling faces at the presentation ceremony.
