Join us for the 7th Annual Cantina Cup Regatta!
Hey all! It's that time of the year again--Cantina Cup time!
We are very excited to announce the opening of registration for the 7th annual Cantina Cup, which promises to be our best regatta yet, starting now through August 8th, 2014. You can register for the regatta here.
Local sailors from all over the mid-Atlantic region will converge on the Southwest Waterfront on August 9th to race in the 7th annual Cantina Cup Regatta. The event features a full day of sailing with over 100 participants to benefit DC Sail's youth scholarship programs. Stick around after the event to partake in post-event festivities such as live music, food, and Mount Gay Rum.
The Notice of Race (NOR) can be found here. Please make sure to read all of the details as you register for the regatta.
This year, in addition to our trophy prizes, we are offering additional prizes/rewards for our top fundraisers as Cantina Cup has gone online! We will be using an online giving campaign to help raise funds for our amazing summer programs. Our goal this year is $50,000 and we can't do it without you. Feel free to sign up as an individual fundraiser or a team and start blasting friends and family for DC Sail. Set up is easy and instructions on how to sign up for the platform can be found here. There's even a sample text for you to use on your giving page for easier set up!

Prizes for the top fundraisers are as follows:
- Free entry into the regatta party for anyone that raises $250 or more;
- Incentive prizes for the Top Racer/Team Fundraiser
- Incentive prizes for the Top Non-Racer/Volunteer Fundraiser
As you know, DC Sail is a volunteer-driven 501(c)3 sailing organization based in DC's Southwest Waterfront neighborhood. Each year, we put nearly 500 low and middle-income students on the water where we teach them boat handling, leadership skills, and an appreciation for the local marine environment. In 2013, over 40% of our kids received either a full or partial scholarship to attend a week of camp. We can't do this without great supporters like you!
So register for the race, sign up for our giving campaign, and let the games begin!
