FATHERS DAY IS THIS COMING SUNDAY, JUNE 16TH. BUY DAD A FARR 40!!
Distance races are not for sissies, and the Annapolis to Newport Race is proving that. First, on Friday, the start was delayed for 4 hours due to the passage of Tropical Storm Andrea. In late afternoon the 56 boat fleet started down the Bay in heavy rain and a 15-18 knot northerly. Challenging problems led to withdrawals early in the race: e.g., hydraulic line burst (during the starting sequence); headstay problem; blew out main during jibe; no engine, therefore no way to charge batteries; block failed injuring crew (evacuated to Norfolk – concern for possible concussion and abundance of caution). Then, on Saturday, to add insult to injury, the wind and the boat speeds dropped. Later Saturday evening one of the double-handed boats blew out her main and another boat, in danger of drifting into the Bay Bridge-Tunnel, turned on her engine and withdrew.. Then came reports of no rum and having been becalmed 24 hours – two more fell by the wayside. Sunday morning one more withdrew. Another had to drop out to put a crew ashore due to a family emergency. And, so it goes. Bluewater racing crews have to have an extra dose of resolve, but sometimes even that won’t be enough! Meanwhile, some have enjoyed lovely breezes.
The start of the Annapolis to Newport Race was delayed 4 hours Friday so that the pesky tropical storm could get out of our Bay. The HarborFest Parade of Sail was cancelled, but the rest of the festival soldiered on. There was a lot of rain, but . . . we got off lucky. In most cases doubling up on lines was not even really necessary, although prudent.
Your next issue of SBRNYCU, #645, will come to you on Monday, July 1st. Between now and then there is plenty of racing for you to do and a lot of the dates and contact info are listed here for your convenience. The Murphster will return with lots of racing news. Ahhhhhhh-oooooo!

Leukemia Cup Regatta July 12 - 14
15th Annual Southern Chesapeake
Leukemia Cup Regatta
July 12 - 14, 2013
Sponsored by Fishing Bay Yacht Club & Stingray Harbour Yacht Club
Supported by Wilton Creek Cruising Club
Hosted by Stingray Point Marina

The Southern Chesapeake Leukemia Cup Regatta is more than boats and crew racing. For 15 years in Virginia, it is a community coming together to invest in research to find cures for blood cancers - leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma - and to help improve the lives of patients and families.
Join us for our 2013 events:
Leukemia Cup Regatta Junior Challenge - Saturday, April 13, 2013 at Christchurch School
Sail-A-Thon - Thursday, June 20, 2013 at Fishing Bay Yacht Club
15th Annual Southern Chesapeake Luekemia Cup Regatta - July 12-14, 2013
Check it out! See Jon Deutsch's 2012 Leukemia Cup video and join us for 2013!

Since 1993, participants in the Leukemia Cup Regatta events throughout the country have raised over $42 million in funding for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Thanks to people like Gary Jobson who is not only a lymphoma survivor, but the winner of the 1976 America's Cup, an ESPN commentator, and the chairperson of The Leukemia Cup campaign since its inception, the sailing community provides even more support year after year.
It's support like this that has enabled LLS over the years to fund research and discover new drug therapies, bring us closer to cures. Since 1949, the survival rate for many blood cancer patients had doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled. Today, some LLS funded drugs are used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are being tested in clinical trials for a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate. Drugs like Gleevec, Sprycel, Arinza, Tasinga and Zolinza are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.
With your support, we can beat cancer!
