Regatta this weekend to aid CHOC

The 14th annual CHOC Regatta takes place this weekend at the Balboa Yacht Club in Corona del Mar.

The event benefits the Children's Hospital of Orange County's post-anesthesia care unit.

Regatta registrations for one-design boats 20 feet and under are due by 11:30 a.m. Saturday. The entry fee is $25.

An awards ceremony, free appetizers and a no-host bar will follow the race from 3:30 to 5 p.m..

Registrations for boats longer than 20 feet are due by 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The entry fee is $50, and a post-race celebration and awards ceremony are planned for 3:30 to 6 p.m.

Either entry fee can be completed the day of the race at the club or beforehand online, for an extra fee.

A raffle for racers and supporters will be held. The drawing is Sunday, and attendance is not mandatory to win.

Last year, 72 boats participated in the regatta, which raised $27,000 for CHOC, organizers said.

The Balboa Yacht Club is at 1801 Bayside Drive, Corona del Mar.
