- 49th AYC Birthday Regatta and Leukemia Cup
- 01.16.2009 - 01.18.2009
- Arizona Yacht Club - Tempe
- West Coast Circuit
Arizona's biggest sailing event of the year will happen at Lake Pleasant, January 16-18, 2009, the weekend of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday.
Saturday and Sunday: The Birthday Regatta takes place both Saturday and Sunday during the day with awards presented Sunday after lunch.
The scores from Saturday's racing will be crunched (by Ace Scorekeeper Dave Christensen) and Saturday night we'll award the Leukemia Cup trophies based on that day's racing. You'll need to enter the Leukemia Cup to be eligible for this and the entire $45 entry is a charitable contribution to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Party: You bet. The big party of the weekend happens Saturday night, kicking off with dinner, ASF raffle, the silent auction, and the regular auction to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Over the last few years we've raised more than $200,000 to help support the LLS research and family assistance programs. Check out the Capri 18 ASF will auction!
