Raise a sail with the Leukemia Cup Regatta

Leukemia Cup Regatta

The Leukemia Cup Regatta is a series of sailing events held across the United States to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The national chairman is Past US Sailing President and America’s Cup winner Gary Jobson who is a lymphoma survivor. Since 1993 these events have raised over $38 million for the benefit of those battling blood cancers.

Leukemia Cup Racing at HYCHouston Yacht Club is pleased to present its 18th annual Leukemia Cup Regatta. We have raised more than $2.5 million in 17 years. For 2016 our goal is to raise $100,000!

This exciting event combines racing and fundraising. It will be sailed in dinghies, one-design and cruising boats. Trophies for sailing and fundraising will be presented in each class. The overall Leukemia Cup trophy will go to the sailor or virtual sailor who brings in the most donations. All donations will go to the Gulf Coast Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for research and patient services.

Each sailor or virtual sailor who raises $12,000 or more will win a Fantasy Sail with Gary Jobson in Newport Beach, California Dec. 2-4. Ted O’Connor will be organizing the sailing logistics. For fundraising information, please contact Jason Berger and for Regatta information, please contact Regatta Chair Cheryl Thomas.
