Welcome to the Set Sail for a Cause,

Leukemia Cup Regatta and Family Fun Sail!


 Sailing the Columbia

  The 2015 Set Sail for a Cause /

     Leukemia Cup Regatta

Saturday, September 19th, 2015

Portland Yacht Club, Portland OR


In some ways, sailing is much like the fight against cancer. Each is a long journey full of triumphs and challenges, changes of direction, and required precise teamwork. And when successful, both are triumphs of empowerment and exhilaration. That is the reason the Oregon Women's Sailing Association (OWSA) created Set Sail for a Cause. OWSA brings sailing to women and women to the sailing community ? helping them to become more confident, assertive and better team members. Set Sail for a Cause, renamed from Sail for the Cure, is their way of giving back to the community combining sailing, support and encouragement all in one great event. Not just for women, Set Sail for a Cause is open to everyone; Men, Women, and children of all levels. In partnership with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Leukemia Cup Regatta, Set Sail for a Cause is going to be the event on the water this year.
