The 17th Annual Southern Chesapeake Leukemia Cup Regatta held in Deltaville over the weekend of July 10-12 was another huge success with 61 registered yachts and enthusiastic crowds at the Auction and Gala held for the second consecutive year at the Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park.

Typically the Southern Chesapeake Leukemia Cup Regatta is one of the most successful Leukemia Cup Regattas in the country in spite of being one of the smallest of such national venues, and this year should prove to be no exception. Having four times been voted the Best Regatta on the Bay by the readers of Chesapeake Bay Magazine, the 2015 Regatta is expected to be a strong contender for this honor ...

IMG_2962“Mad Dogs and Englishmen [and sailboat racers] go out in the mid day sun”, or words to that effect, and seventy (70), some meeting overlapping criteria, went out on a sizzling race course off Stingray Point  both days this past weekend for a very good cause – the 14th Annual Southern Chesapeake Leukemia Cup Regatta.  The event was two days of racing and additional days of shore side happenings, including a Friday evening special “Meet and Mingle” with Gary Jobson, National Chair of The Leukemia Cup Regatta.  The record setting heat conditions required some chutzpah on the part of the racers and some creativity on the part of race officials.  Nevertheless, each of the fleets got in ...
