MISSA Leukemia Cup Regatta
MISSA Leukemia Cup Regatta
About this event
Since 2016, MISSA participation in the Lower Lake St. Clair Leukemia Cup Regatta has been a highlight on the High School Racing calendar. Each year over 100 High School Sailors showed their love of sailing while helping raise funds for a fabulous cause. These young Sailors brought out the best of School Athletics and made local news for their involvement and contribution to the community.
Please join Regional High School Sailing Teams at this popular Tier 3 event with racing directly in front of the fabulous Grosse Pointe Yacht Club’s Sailing Center facility. High School sailing friends, family, or those just interested, are warmly welcomed to come watch the racing from the fantastic two story spectator viewing areas. Enjoy free parking, open access to the unique “Tower Pub”, and during a race break stroll among the moorings or beautiful grounds by Lake Saint Claire. Come down to cheer for your favorite High School, or just enjoy the day while helping raise funds for Leukemia!

The Lower Lake St. Clair Leukemia Cup Regatta is one of over 45 Regattas across the United States. These regattas to date have raised over $50 Million towards life-saving cancer research.
Thank your for your participation in 2018. It was a great success! Our goal for 2019 is to continue to grow this event, increase participation, and yet maintain the “fun factor” with excellent racing.
Again this year, each participating High School will have a “School” fund raising page set up by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This allowed an expansion of the competition found on the race course into the school. Now even the non-sailor students can participate supporting their School and Sailing Team. We are looking forward to continuing this next year!
Please stand by for forthcoming information about activities and functions taking place as part of the 2019 HS Leukemia Cup Regatta. Our intention is to make this event a fun destination for High School Sailors, their families, friends and anyone else interested in sailing; or helping out with raising funds for this very important fund raiser. Your PARTICIPATING MEANS SAVING LIVES!
