Leukemia Cup 2018: Register Now!

Norris Comer Sailboat Racing

Leukemia CupThe annual Leukemia Cup Regatta is one of the standout charity races of Puget Sound. The popular event benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) that fights to create a world without blood cancers. The success of the race is in part thanks to a partnership with Elliott Bay Marina, which has fully embraced the event as a day-long celebration and kickoff to the popular casual summer race series, the Downtown Sailing Series.

Slated for June 9 this year, registration for the Leukemia Cup is open now. The most direct way to participate is to register your boat online (registration links available at leukemiacup.org). If you don’t own a boat or are less of a sailor yourself, you can also donate online and join the land-based fun as well. What’s more, younger sailors can support LLS by participating in a May 20 Seattle Yacht Club Junior Regatta!

This event is made possible in part by the Elliott Bay Marina Leukemia Cup Regatta Committee members: Brandon Baker, Phil Calvert, Dwight Jones, Christina Marie Kimball, Tom Leonard, Brent Reys, Matthew Wood, and Shaun Wurzner. Special thanks also go to Boat Insurance Agency, SeaGlass Wines, Sterling Marine Services, and Tacoma Firelogs. For more information or registration assistance, feel free to call 888-557-7177 or email supportservices@LLS.org.
