Birthday Regatta Entry Now Open – Register Here!

Ahoy Sailors!

Don’t miss the first major AZ Regatta of 2011! It’s time to get ready for the Arizona Yacht Club Birthday Regatta and the 12th Annual Arizona Leukemia Cup – the first Leukemia Cup Regatta of 2011 January 14th through the 16th, 2011.

AYC and the Desert Mountain Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society invite you to join in for a full range of on-water and on-shore fun. Activities will include three days of racing Friday through Sunday with meals, entertainment and a special dinner Saturday.  Our keynote speaker Saturday night will be Paralympic GOLD MEDAL WINNER and newly elected U S Sailing Board of Directors Member, Maureen McKinnon-Tucker in addition to our outstanding special auction to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Racing will be from Friday through Sunday (Friday optional, each class will determine two or three days of racing), with the Leukemia Cup being held on Saturday.

Don’t miss Friday night’s dinner.  It is being prepared by the legendary culinary skill of our current Club Champion, Rick Johnson.

Our race committee will have a special look this year too! Andrea Caroe from Mission Bay Yacht Club in San Diego will be our PRO! Many of the Buccaneer and 14.2 sailors will remember her Pink RC flag from their events held at MYC.

Please check the RACING page of www.arizonayachtclub.org for the notice of race, registration and sailing instructions and other updates. Other questions can be sent to me, Regatta Director Greg Jackson,  at jr.staff.commodore@arizonayachtclub.org.

So come out and enjoy our desert hospitality up at Lake Peasant, January 14th through the 16th and help us help others through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!
