Nearly 100 power and sailboats took park in the Annual Erie Yacht Club Charity Regatta Sunday afternoon.

Sailboats competed in a 5 mile bay race and power boats took part in a poker run.

Participants also enjoyed live entertainment and a barbecue after the races.

The event benefits the Erie County chapter of the American Red Cross.

This is the 30th year for the event.

"The club has stepped up and become the venue where we all can come together and raise awareness for the American Red Cross mission and a lot of needed dollars for you know, the disasters that happen to the neighbors, people that we all know,” said Pam Masi, Executive Director of the American Red Cross.

The sail boat, Keya, took first in class. The Keya was piloted by Tom Trost and crewmember, Fay Trost.
