Panama City Beach- 18 sailboats with captain and crew participated in the 2nd annual Leukemia Cup Regattae, Saturday. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society along with Bay Point and St. Andrews yacht clubs sponsored the event.
All the boats in the Regatta raise money throughout the year for research and the actual winner is not the boat that comes in first, but the crew that raises the most money.
There will be a first place finisher in the race, after all the boats sailed a 3 mile course three times around.
The goal this year was to raise 50 thousand dollars from sponsors, and for the second year they will surpass their goal.
