Flip Flop Regatta / Boston Aug. 8 & 9

Flip Flop Regatta

On behalf of The ALLY Foundation and the Flip Flop Regatta Committee, we welcome sailors and their guests, to the first annual Flip Flop Regatta.

This regatta is held in memory of Alexandra Nicole Zapp, a devoted long-time friend of the sailing community and an avid philanthropist, who was murdered last year at a Massachusetts rest stop. We expect this Regatta to become an annual Boston tradition, and continue Alexandra''s altruistic ideal through donations to the charities she supported, including the Courageous Sailing Center and Sail Newport.

The Flip Flop Regatta is a US Sailing sanctioned race, and the first major PHRF Regatta originating in Boston Harbor. The Principle Race Officer for this event will be Peter Reggio, the 2003 Americas Cup Louis Vuitton Challenger Series PRO. Jerry Kirby, veteran bowman for Stars & Stripes during the 2003 Americas Cup Challenge, will chair the Race Committee. Together these individuals bring years of world-class race management and experience to the Regatta.
