Pirate Market Fair Summary / Application

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, the Tall Ship Royaliste and Red Lion Jantzen Beach, Set Sail for a Cause is going to be the event on the water this year.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society?s Leukemia Cup Regatta is a thrilling series of sailing events that combines the joy of boating with the important task of raising money to cure cancer. Since its inception, The Leukemia Cup Regatta has raised millions of dollars for lifesaving research and patient services, bringing help and hope to patients and their families.

At events held at yacht clubs across North America, skippers register their boats and recruit friends and colleagues to help crew and to raise funds. Crew members seek donations from friends, family, co-workers and employers to sponsor their boat. National and local event sponsors also support the Leukemia Cup Regatta.


Set Sail for a Cause has raised more that $270,000 for the fight against cancer.
