THE RACING than one percent of all available cancer research funds — mean that an event like the Sarcoma Cup, August 22-23, can go a long way toward raising both funds and awareness of the diseases. One hundred percent of the money raised will go toward funding Sarcoma research. Last year the event raised over $18,000 in its first edition. This year, Criou hopes to at least double that. If the growing list of entries is any indication, it may be attracting enough critical mass to get there. Hosted by Richmond YC, the regatta will feature one-design, cruising and PHRF divisions sailing in the club's triedand-true format of a day of buoy racing followed by a pursuit race on the second day. The J/105s have the option of doing two days of buoy racing. The winner of the regatta will receive a free haul-out — as if you needed any more motivation to go sailboat racing for a really good cause. There's a full-on raffle with prizes like a Garmin GPS, Sony car stereo, Logitech webcam and first-class subscription to Latitude 38.
