Leukemia Cup Regatta Pics!


Forty-four sailboats in 6 classes set a record and raced for a cure for leukemia and other blood cancers at the mouth of the Neuse River and Pamlico Sound this weekend at River Dunes Harbor. The two day event raised over $90,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The official race was scheduled to begin on Saturday at noon; however, lack of wind forced a postponement. However, there was a heated competition in the no-hull swimming division.

Participants returned to the docks at River Dunes and enjoyed a fund-raising shore party with live and silent auctions and dinner and dancing.

“The success of this event was due to the tremendous turn-out and support of the local sailing community,” stated River Dunes Director of Marina Operations, JC Cappelmann. “This is a great cause, everyone had a good time, and we set a record for funds raised for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.”

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
