JOIN US FOR THE 15TH ANNUAL DOWNTOWN SAILING SERIES!
Founded in 2004 as a vehicle to get Seattle boaters out on their boats, the Downtown Sailing Series is a casual weekly summer regatta showcasing the sport of sailing to the citizens of Seattle. Popular with local boating enthusiasts, the post-regatta party has taken on a life of its own as great venue for building a sense of community. Since its partnership with the Leukemia Cup Regatta in 2005, the Downtown Sailing Series has helped raise more than $1,500,000 for blood borne disease. Join our incredible sponsors and loyal participants in this summertime tradition!
Race or cruise with dozens of boats of every size as they set sail from Elliott Bay Marina, cross the Seattle skyline and run back. Afterwards celebrate over beer, wine and hotdogs at the Seattle Yacht Club outstation. You may even win a sail bag of goodies from our sponsors. It’s a great way to spend time with your mates and meet fellow sailors!
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS:
Leukemia Cup Regatta Returning to Elliott Bay Marina
The Leukemia Cup Regatta campaign continues to set sail to raise funds to support blood cancer research and patient services. This year’s race will take place on Saturday, June 9 at Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle.
The Leukemia Cup Regatta is a thrilling series of sailing events that combines the joy of boating with the important goal of raising money to fight leukemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers. Each sailor in the Regatta series is eligible to win prizes including the opportunity to race at the Celebration Sail in New Orleans, Louisiana on November 30 – December 1, 2018.
“With more than one million people in North American diagnosed with a blood cancer, the Leukemia Cup Regatta is an important fundraising event that gives participants an opportunity to do something enjoyable while making a critical difference in the lives of patients and their families,” said Gary Jobson, national chairman emeritus of the Leukemia Cup series.
