Our Southern Bay Leukemia Cup Regatta was rated one of the top ten fund raising events in the county for 2011 and the number one regatta for the Southern Bay. This year we are encouraging all cruisers to join the race and hope to have 100 boats in the cruising class. Registrations are still ongoing at www.leukemiacup.org/va . Need crew or want to crew? Check the bulletin / chalkboards at Stingray Point Marina. For those with visiting friends, Stingray Point Marina has offered free dockage for fundraising boats on a first come, first serve basis. If you are not able to participate in the race, at least come to the party. Famous sailor and author, Gary Jobson, will be at the cocktail reception on Friday, July 6 and tickets are only $25.00. There will be a Gala with food and beverages on Saturday, July 7, as well as charity benefiting auctions. The race continues through Sunday and promises to be a lot of fun for everyone and supports a great cause.
