LEUKEMIA CUP EARLY REGISTRATION
All sailors are reminded that early-bird registration for the 14th Annual Southern Chesapeake Leukemia Cup Regatta to be held in Deltaville over the weekend of July 6 - 8 closes on June 15. After this date, the registration fee increases by $25 and regrettably the names of participating yachts cannot be included on the commemorative Regatta T-shirt. It's easy to register, and it's all online at www.leukemiacup.org/va.
The sensational news this year is that the Southern Bay Leukemia Cup Regatta has been voted Best Regatta on the Bay by the readers of "Chesapeake Bay Magazine." We invite everyone to come and experience two days of racing at the Fishing Bay Yacht Club and two nights of exciting activities at Stingray Point Marina which includes an appearance by sailing celebrity Gary Jobson, silent and live auctions, food and refreshments, and musical entertainment.
All the details can be found online.
While the Regatta is CBYRA sanctioned, it is important to note that an official PHRF rating is only required to race in the Offshore Divisions. Our largest racing contingent is the Cruising Division where other offshore sailboats, even those skippered by novices, are assigned a competitive rating by our team of experienced handicappers and can participate in a lower key racing format which the whole family can enjoy.
All proceeds from Regatta events, a portion of which may be tax deductible, assist the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in its mission: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
