2019 Leukemia Cup Regatta Results

8 Yachts. 54 Pirates. $17,780 Raised.

Sailors participating in the Leukemia Cup Regatta on Sunday, October 20 were rewarded with blissful sailing conditions on San Francisco Bay - warm sunshine, flat water, and easy 12-knot breezes.

This year our band of Pirates achieved a 2nd Place Top Fundraising Team award, while Team Phoenix, skippered by our CEO Leigh Hunt, sailed to a 3rd place finish in her class. The turnout of our enthusiastic Pirates was hard to not notice, prompting our friends at Latitude 38 to give our blue-shirted mob a nod in their article, Leukemia Cup — As Good As It Gets.

Thank you to all who participated and donated for helping to make a difference in the lives of those affected by blood cancers and for making the Regatta a fun and memorable event for all.

Our gratitude goes out especially to Kevin Holden and Ernest Khirallah, our inspirational leaders behind Team Pirates for a Cause, and individual fundraisers Maureen, Melissa, Leigh, Deniz, Daniele, Jeff, and Gina who went above and beyond in their contributions to the Modern Sailing team effort.

Missed the boat? It's not too late to donate.

    I took ASA 101 with them recently. They have the best customer service I've ever seen! I mistyped my address when I signed up online so didn't receive the textbook. I called and the lady immediately sent me another copy! Everyone at the club is super friendly.

    The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.

    I would definitely recommend Modern Sailing to anyone who is interested in learning to sail the right way.
