Branford Patch: Favorable conditions awaited the passengers of  R.A.C.E.’s on their first voyage of 2011, which took place [Sunday, May 1]. Like the smiling children lined up to enjoy an afternoon out on the water, the perfect weather was a Godsend—a miracle, which came just in time to dispel the gloom cast by several months of turbulence and uncertainty.

As explained on their website, “R.A.C.E. (Remission and Cures Everywhere), Inc. is a group of experienced boating enthusiasts who are dedicated to providing a way for people with cancer and their caregivers to enjoy Long Island Sound by boat.”

This is their second year in operation, and the number of sails they have planned for this season far exceeds that of last year—they have 22 sails scheduled for 2011. R.A.C.E. is partnered with Schooner Inc.—another non-profit organization—and offers free 2-hour sails for patients, families, and their caregivers.
