Leukemia Cup Racing at HYC

Raise a sail with the Leukemia Cup Regatta

June 23-24, 2018

Leukemia Cup Regatta

The Leukemia Cup Regatta is a series of sailing events held across the United States to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Since 1993 these events have raised over $58 million for the benefit of those battling blood cancers.

Leukemia Cup Racing at HYCHouston Yacht Club is pleased to present its 20th annual Leukemia Cup Regatta. We have raised more than $3 million in 19 years. For 2018 our goal is to raise $150,000.

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 $15,000 or more will win a Celebration Sail at Southern Yacht Club in New Orleans.
