We salute Gary Jobson and Our Top Supporters Everywhere

In 2014, more than 10,000 sailors from around the country combined a passion for sailing with an equal passion to fight cancer, raising more than $4 million to help cure blood cancers. Since the start of the Leukemia Cup Regatta campaign in 1987, more than $50 million has been raised by the sailing community to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's programs. 

The Leukemia Cup Regatta participants were led in their efforts by world class sailor, television commentator and author Gary Jobson, who serves as the event's national chairman. 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 2014. We are so grateful for your fantastic support!
