About Hospice Cup

The Hospice Cup regatta was founded in 1981 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with the goal of raising awareness and funds for hospice and palliative care in our region. What began as a small local race in America’s sailing capital has evolved into a premier event, with more than 100 boats and nearly 1,000 sailors coming together annually from across the country. Today, this beloved Annapolis race is the largest charity regatta in the United States and a destination for competitive racers.

Who We Support

For more than 40 years, Hospice Cup has continually supported local care programs in our region, including Montgomery & Prince George’s Hospice, Talbot Hospice, Capital Caring Kids, and the Luminis Health Gilchrist Lifecare Institute at Anne Arundel Medical Center.

The non-profit hospice programs that the Cup supports offer compassion, dignity, and a dedication to quality of life for those in our community facing the challenges of serious illness and end-of-life. This includes comfort care for loved ones as well as bereavement and family services not often covered by insurance or medicare.
