The Leukemia Cup Regatta is a racing series designed to raise funds for research to cure blood related cancers like leukemia and lymphoma.
It has raised over $66 million dollars since it began in Annapolis in 1992. Since then, thousands of sailors around the country have taken part in raising funds and sailing for this important cause. The Annapolis Leukemia Cup is a CBYRA-sanctioned regatta held annually in Annapolis, to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), Maryland Chapter. Management this year is by Eastport Yacht Club, with assistance from Annapolis Yacht Club, Herrington Harbor Sailing Association, Maryland Yacht Club, Miles River Yacht Club, and Rock Creek Racing Association.
