Anyone can race in Hospice Cup!

Whether you are a seasoned racer who has a room full of trophies or a cruising sailor who dreams of competing, Hospice Cup has the race for you!

No matter which class you choose to race in you are sure to have a good time and be happy in knowing that you are helping Hospice Cup realize its mission of raising funds for and awareness of hospice care in your community.


For novice sailors looking to take part in a Chesapeake Bay sailing race, register to race in our Hospice Class. A non-spinnaker class, this is the perfect race to get a feel for sailing competition. Hospice Class racers are given additional instruction by our Race Committee members and compete against boats in a pursuit style race course.


Hospice Cup is sanctioned by the Chesapeake Bay Yacht Racing Association (CBYRA) and counts toward the season high point total. Boats registered in the CBYRA Class race in one of two circles, Red Fleet or White Fleet, depending on PHRF rating and design.


Hospice Cup is a fundraiser. We offer a fun and convenient way for individuals and teams to help with our fundraising efforts. Mighty Cause is an online platform that lets you set up a personal web page and solicit family, friends, and co-workers to help you raise funds.
