Arizona Yacht Club News — The annual Leukemia Cup & Birthday Regatta is Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Feb. 16-18. As always, three days of racing, cruising and desert hospitality are highlights. The event is the nation’s first Leukemia Cup Regatta of the year.
The AYC Leukemia Cup & Birthday Regatta provides a fabulous taste of desert winter sailing, usually with warm days, fresh breezes and a wilderness vibe that no other regatta can match.
Expected classes include Buccaneer, Portsmouth, Catalina 22, Viper 640, Montgomery 17, Santana 20, PHRF spin, PHRF non-spin, Multi-Hull, and TransLoch cruising.
Throughout the year AYC has various social events outside of their racing, cruising, and education programs. The big racing event of the year is the Leukemia Cup & Birthday Regatta, where the Saturday night dinner and party is always a great get-together.
