2019 National Results

2019 National Results

We salute Our Top Supporters Everywhere

In 2019, more than 10,000 participants and supporters from around the country combined a passion for sailing, power boating and stand-up paddle with an equal passion to fight cancer, raising nearly $4 million to help cure blood cancers. Since the start of the Leukemia Cup Regatta campaign in 1988, more than $70 million has been raised by the sailing community to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's programs.

Leukemia Cup Regatta participants were led in their efforts by world-class sailor, television commentator and author Gary Jobson, who serves as the campaign's national chairman emeritus. Gary was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2003. We salute him for helping us fight these cancers.

Our deepest thanks to all of the sailors, yacht clubs and sponsors who participated in 2019. We are so grateful for your fantastic support!
