6th Annual Jeffrey Adam Memorial Regatta
Saturday, March 11, 2017
The Jeffrey Adam Memorial Regatta is an annual community event that is the result of the cooperation of the yacht clubs, Sea Scouts, and sailing school that have their homes in Dana Point Harbor. Jeff was unique in that he participated in all of them at one time or another.
The Leo Block family has thought of the Dana Point Harbor Youth Foundation for donations in Leo's memory. Donations will be directed to sailing scholarships for family members of veterans.
The 2016 Richard Henry Dana Charity Regatta has come to an end and was another fun and successful event in helping the Foundation further the growth of youth sailing.

Sue Senescu Legacy Fund Established
All those who knew Sue, know that she was passionate about sailing, fiercly competitive, and a strong supporter of both women's and youth sailing. She was also a Board Member of the Foundation at its re-establishment in 2006. Sue provided her time, talents, and financial support to many youth sailing activities, including the Jeffrey Adam Memorial Regatta and most recently the establishment of the JSerra High School Sailing Team.
Together with her family, we are proudly announcing the establishment of the Sue Senescu Legacy Fund with her husband Barry as the initial advisor to the Fund. This Fund will provide support to both women's and youth sailing as a legacy to Sue's memory.
Foundation Renewed as Beneficiary
After a very successful year for the 2015 Richard Henry Dana Charity Regatta, Dana Point Harbor Youth Foundation was renewed for two years as the beneficiary of Dana Point Yacht Club's annual Richard Henry Dana Charity Regatta.® Our goal for 2016 is to raise $100,000 for the support of all youth sailing programs in the harbor.
As an annual event in the harbor, the Charity Regatta's mission is to bring together the business, civic and social leaders of our community with its boating members in order to raise money to benefit our community in South Orange County. This prestigious event promises once again, to be the sailing and social event of the year. Since its inception, the Richard Henry Dana Charity Regatta® has raised over $675,000 dollars for local charities through corporate donations, sponsorships and individual contributions.
