Tommy Whitesides memorial Regatta March 25th - 26th

Tommy Whiteside starting sailing in the early 1980s and became a very active sailor in Columbia when he moved here in the early 1990s. In 1993, Tommy and 15 others started SEACATS (Southeastern Association for Catamaran Sailing), which hosted regattas and donated the proceeds to Midlands Marine Institute. In 1998 Tommy passed away and in 1999 the Tommy Whiteside Memorial Regatta began. It is open to both monohulls and multihulls and the proceeds of the regatta have been donated to charities that involve children and/or sailing, totaling over $18,000.

This year all proceeds will go to sponsor Camp Kemo, a week long summer camp for kids with cancer.
