|Welcome to Sailing for a Cure Foundation,
home of the Fleur de Lis Regatta!
On September 15, 16 and 17, 2017 the Sailing for a Cure Foundation is teaming up with Gilda’s Club Louisville for the 17th annual Louisville Fleur De Lis Regatta – and it’s going to be better than ever! Join the fun at Louisville’s waterfront as you watch 30+ sailboats race the Ohio River for the trophy! Bring your family and friends – the public is welcome! Click here to see the full schedule.
When sailors participate in the Fleur de Lis Regatta they help raise valuable funds for Gilda's Club Louisville to help support their mission: to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE 2017 FLEUR DE LIS REGATTA will be held at a new location. The City of Jeffersonville, IN, has welcomed us to its waterfront facilities.
The City of Louisville’s Waterfront Development Corporation’s costs for use of their facilities have been increased for the past two years, which has resulted in reductions of our donations to Gilda’s Club. The City of Jeffersonville’s fees for use of their facilities are substantially less, therefore, we should be able to increase our donations again. Additionally, there are several restaurant facilities across the street and within short walks from the waterfront dock facilities in Jeffersonville.
While the I-65 bridges are now tolled, the Second Street Bridge is still FREE!! There is also free parking along the waterfront docks. The dock fingers are 35 feet long and there is ample space between the fingers for at least two boats. The slips are 10 to 15 feet in depth. The shallowest depth is 3 feet within 4 feet of the seawall.
The FDL Committee hopes that you will begin to reach out to your friends, business relationships, family and other contacts and seek donations for our efforts.
You can become even more involved by going to the sailing team page and making a donation in the name of a specific boat, skipper or first mate. For general donations it's as simple as clicking the button below.
