2021 Cantina Cup - Annual Regatta & Fundraising Event

   Saturday, September 18, 2021

The Cantina Cup Regatta was created 14 years ago as an annual event to bring together DC Sail's members and local sailing organizations to support the mission of promoting and sustaining affordable, educational, recreational and competitive sailing programs for youth in a fun and safe environment. 

Racing will take place on a variety of race courses throughout the day, culminating at our "After Party & Awards Ceremony Event.

Cantina Cup Regatta is our signature fundraising event that supports the DC Sail Youth Scholarship Program which provides over $20,000 annually in scholarship opportunities to children under the age of 18, who would otherwise not have the ability to explore the beauty of the sport of sailing, along with water and boating safety curriculum, and the appreciation of our fragile waterway systems.

With the growth of our programs and facilities, we have the ability to increase the number of children we serve in the DC Metro area.  And with your help, we hope to provide even more scholarship opportunities in 2022!
