Have you signed up to enter the regatta? Take a moment to sign up and to view who is coming on the President’s/Leukemia Cup website: http://www.potomacriversailing.org/PresidentsLeukemiaCups/ You do not need to pay your entry fee in advance, but signing up online really helps the regatta organizers plan for food and other regatta details. Plus, it generates good enthusiasm among your fellow sailors – so take a moment to sign up today!
It is also not too late to register with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to raise funds for a great cause! If you raise just $100 in advance of the regatta, you will qualify for the LLS Saturday Racing Awards (model wooden boats, 2 deep in each one-design fleet). You will also receive 3 dinner tickets for Saturday’s post-race party, 2 regatta t-shirts, and a goody bag with more fun stuff. Click below to read more about additional fundraising incentives and the rest of the weekend’s activities, including Friday night’s party and guest speaker Gary Jobson.
Full details on fundraising awards are available in the regatta NOR, posted to the regatta website. Additional prizes for fundraising will be awarded at Saturday’s LLS regatta party, and you’ll also have the chance to bid on silent auction items. As in past years, we will also have a band for entertainment to complement the food and drink.
Finally, don’t forget the Friday evening regatta kick-off party (6-8 p.m. as WSM), featuring food from Outback Steakhouse and guest speaker Gary Jobson. Each boat that has raised $100 by Friday evening will receive dinner tickets for the skipper & crew (e.g. 2 tickets for an Albacore, 3 tickets for a Lightning, etc.). Additional tickets are available for $10.
I hope to see you at all of these great events and out on the water!
