A Focus on Sustainability

Hospice Cup is a registered Clean Regatta, pursuing its platinum certification for 2024.

This event is lucky to call the Chesapeake Bay watershed home, so we place a high priority on care and stewardship of our local environment and wildlife. We are partnering with sponsors, businesses, and organizations who share this commitment to protecting local shorelines and minimizing waste. With their help, this year’s skippers bags and regatta giveaways will include a variety of premium reusable, practical, and upcycled goods. Skippers should encourage their crews to avoid single-use plastic bottles and instead bring reusable water bottles to this year’s race.

Crew meals are available for pre-order from our Bread & Butter Kitchen, and feature locally-sourced food, including vegan and vegetarian options. Dinner and beverage service at this year’s shore party will utilize only compostable and reusable materials.

Hospice Cup Artist Selection

The Hospice Cup Artist Selection has a storied history dating back almost as long as the Cup itself. Each year, Hospice Cup partners with the Maryland Federation of Art to host a competition.

The winning work and artist are honored at an annual spring reception and the selected image serves as the feature artwork for that year’s regatta. For more information and to sign up for news and alerts about the next artist competition, signup for our email list here.

Congratulations to the 2024 winner Bill Sutton
for his artwork Chasing Red.
