Sparkman & Stephens Rendezvous - Elliot Bay Marina

We have been asked to publicize the following event. From the organizers:

A Sparkman & Stephens Rendezvous will be held at Elliott Bay Marina (Seattle, WA), the weekend of June 9, 2012. If you have a boat designed by Sparkman & Stephens either power or sail, you are encouraged to attend this event. Elliott Bay Marina is providing free weekend moorings for all boats participating in this Rendezvous, and there will be an opportunity to see other S&S boats and talk with other owners. There will be catered hors d’oeuvres served during the afternoon no-host cocktail party for Rendezvous participants.

The Rendezvous is being held in conjunction with the Leukemia Cup. The Leukemia Cup is a fun filled sailboat race to raise money for and awareness of leukemia and lymphoma. Over $39 million dollars has been raised nationally since the Leukemia Cup was started. The Leukemia Cup will have a sailboat race on Saturday afternoon followed by an evening dinner and auction. Skippers register their boats and recruit their friends and colleagues to help crew and raise funds. The $150 registration fee includes two tickets to the after-party that evening, an event t-shirt and a skipper swag bag. You are encouraged to participate in the Leukemia Cup but it is not mandatory.

Please contact woodleygroup@comcast.net to answer any questions you might have, or to let them know that you will be attending. Information is available at www.ssrendezvous.org. Leukemia Cup information is available at www.lls.org. Registration for the Leukemia Cup will be available at a discount at the Seattle Boat Show in January, 2012 and through the Leukemia Cup website.
