Louie’s Last Regatta

Louie's Last RegattaLouie's Last Regatta is a memorable regatta for sailors and an important fundraiser for Children's Wisconsin. For over 20 years, sailors have been gathering together to celebrate the end of sailing season and to raise money for the kids and families of Wisconsin. 100% of the funds raised by participants directly support programs and services that prevent and ease the suffering of children.

Back by popular demand, the scavenger hunt will be filled with activities that incorporate the historical and traditional fun of Louie's Last Regatta. The scavenger hunt will take place throughout the month of September leading up to the regatta sailing event on Saturday, September 25.
