"The Detroit River Regatta Association (DRRA) shares race fans' disappointment that high winds and bad weather prevented the completion of Sunday's Gold Cup Race but we are grateful that the two drivers whose boats crashed due to the winds are going be okay.

The DRRA is a voluntary not-for-profit (NPO) organization that produces the races with more than 400 volunteers who give tens of thousands of hours of their time to make the races happen each year.

The DRRA wants to find some appropriate recognition for loyal boat race fans and will explore all options once the budget of this year's race is settled and the financial picture is clarified.

The DRRA board plans to announce its evaluation and actions in 60 days."

Tom Bertolini, President, Detroit River Regatta Association
