    WHY:   Sailors believe in taking care of others, on the water and on the
           shore. That belief was the inspiration for the Toronto Area
           Hospice Regatta to benefit Perram House, a residential palliative
           care facility in downtown Toronto for individuals with a limited
           life expectancy. Working with a dedicated nursing, medical and
           personal support staff with the assistance of trained volunteers,
           Perram House helps the patient and their families to make the most
           of the time they have left together.
