Business Profile: Regatta Point Community Sailing makes splash at State Park

by | Apr 28, 2024 | Business, Featured

There will be a new look for water activities at Hopkinton State Park this year, provided by an old friend. Regatta Point Community Sailing, a nonprofit with six decades of experience running programs on Worcester’s Lake Quinsigamond, is expanding its offerings to Hopkinton State Park.

This new location expands Regatta Point’s range of activities, catering to seasoned sailors and beginners alike. There are opportunities for people of all abilities to find something they can enjoy. With one membership, individuals can explore the water in new and exciting ways at each location — in town at the State Park or a 25-minute ride away on Lake Quinsigamond.

‘This incredible expansion opportunity allows for optimal water access for sailing and rowing at the Worcester location during the competitive season as well as for recreational activities such as paddleboarding and kayaking in Hopkinton,” says Regatta Point executive director Casey Duva, who has been involved with the program since 2001. “There is something for everyone!”

The program in Hopkinton opens May 4 and operates on weekends only (10 a.m.-7 p.m.) until May 25, when it opens daily for the summer (10 a.m.-7 p.m.). From Sept. 3 to Oct. 14, it returns to a weekend schedule (10 a.m.-5 p.m.).

The organization takes great pride in fostering a sense of community and ensuring accessibility for all individuals.

One of the key aspects that sets Regatta Point Community Sailing apart is its dedication to creating a welcoming atmosphere. The organization goes above and beyond to encourage a feeling of community among its members. In addition to the water activities, Regatta Point hosts social events like moonlight paddles, providing the perfect opportunity for members to relax, enjoy the beautiful scenery and spend quality time together in their own neighborhood.

“We are all teachers and learners, and the staff here cultivates that community atmosphere,” Duva says. “My beloved dog, Bentley, is the designated canine lifeguard. Bentley also loves getting piggyback rides to and from the water from whoever will oblige,” he adds with a chuckle.

Further investing in its community, Regatta Point provided $12,000 in scholarships last year, ensuring no child would be turned away from its programs.

Anyone interested in becoming a member, enrolling a child in summer camp or learning more about the organization and its offerings can check the Regatta Point Community Sailing website at regattapoint.org, email info@regattapoint.org or call 508-757-2140.
