Put your sailing skills to the test and participate in the Leukemia Cup Regatta to help raise money for lifesaving research and patient services, bringing help and hope to blood cancer patients and their families. Part of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society‘s (“LLS”) efforts to fight blood cancer, this special event is held annually in yacht clubs across North America where “skippers register their sailboats and recruit friends and colleagues to help crew and raise funds”.

By participating in the Leukemia Cup Regatta, not only will you help advance LLS’s mission to: cure leukemia, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma, but you will also be eligible to win prizes from national sponsors such as West Marine, Gosling’s Rum and National Sails. You can also win a trip to sail with world-renowned sailor Gary Jobson, national Regatta chairman. By raising $10,000 or more, you will automatically earn participation in the Annual Fantasy Sail!

Whatever reason motivates you, this is a sail certain to make you feel good because, as the wind takes you and your sailboat across the vast body of water, you will have a peace of mind knowing that you are helping improve the quality of life of so many people fighting this disease. And that should be motivation enough to do it. For more information about the Leukemia Cup Regatta, or to register for a regatta near you, please visit
