J/70s Join New England Leukemia Cup

J/70 one-design speedster- sailing upwind(Newport, RI)- Come support a great cause on Saturday June 8th for the Newport Leukemia Cup!  There will be dozens of J/Teams from all across the spectrum supporting this event on a regional basis- J/111s, J/22s, J/24s, J/27s, J/29s, J/30s, J/35s, J/40s, J/124s, J/100s (maybe Governor Chafee of Rhode Island?) and others will be in the mix.

The J/70s are being given their own one design start. So, come one, come all to make this a successful event to help combat leukemia.

On Sunday June 9th, the J/70s are hosting a "Tuning Day"-- a "can't miss day" full of learning all the go-fasts in a seminar environment.  North University’s Bill Gladstone will be filming both days. Following on-the-water tuning, boat-speed sessions, practice starts and races, a panel discussion with Tim Healy (North Sails), Kerry Klingler (Quantum Sails) and hopefully more will be part of the program.

SailNewport has graciously offered their facilities and have provided access to the Alofsin Piers for dockage on Saturday night and the Museum of Yachting to host the panel discussion!  Be sure to sign up now!  Please RSVP to ""    For the Newport Leukemia Cup sailing information
