Leukemia Cup 2011 (10th Anniversary)

May 9, 2011 in Racing Blog by mike

WOW!  What a weekend.  LYC sailors did it again.  3 Entries, 3 Trophies.  PARAGON ended up in 1st place, Floating Logic ended up in 2nd place, and Lil Buddie ended up in 3rd place in each of their classes.  I want to personally thank my crew for their outstanding teamwork.  All year long they have continued to work like a well oiled machine.  All I had to do was drive.  Also, Kenny (Lil Buddie) was tied in points for 1st place.  It was very close racing!  I have to say that I enjoyed this race so much because we were constantly looking a little forward or a little behind us at the competition.  The top three boats were never far away.  Most of the time, a beer could be thrown between us.

The event contributed more than $125,000 to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society making the grand total for all 10 years to over $1,000,000.

The races included collisions, broaches, and lots of wind.  The food was awesome. The Painkillers were both fruity and full of Mount Gay Rum.  Lastly, there was some great scenery.
