    Reasons to Participate in the LWM Cape Charles Cup

            - It is THE Racing Event for Serious Cruisers, and THE Cruising Event for Serious Racers!

            - The Saturday awards social on the docks at Oyster Farm Marina is legendary!

            - The Sunday morning breakfast/lunch box is continuing!

            - It is a great value for the money!

            - It supports youth sailing in Tidewater. Again, last year the LWM Cape Charles Cup committee and BBSA donated $5000 to SAIL NAUTICUS to help support Hampton Roads youth and community sailing. 

            - It is so much fun!

            - For six years in a row, the Cape Charles Cup has been voted the "Best Regatta in the Chesapeake" during Chesapeake Bay Magazine's "Best of the Bay" Competition!

    Final Details

    Please pass to your cruising and racing friends: Special $95 entry fee for any owner that has never entered this race before (we know you’ll come back after your first Cape Charles Cup).
    Due to the continuing construction at the various Little Creek area marinas, make your reservations early if you plan to sail in and stay overnight on Friday for the Skippers Meeting.

    We look forward to having you enter the 20th Annual Cape Charles Cup Regatta.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
    Best wishes,
