Pink Boat Regatta

Ever year, sailors and supporters alike start planning months ahead of time to don their pink, get their sailboats race ready, and begin campaigning as part of an event which was born of a passionate little Seattle sailing community dedicated to getting on the water for something greater. Something affecting us all. Something we CAN do something about, just by coming together and doing what we love most – being on the water.

It’s infectiously PINK.
It’s infectiously FUN.
And it’s even more IMPACTFUL.

100% of all net proceeds from The Pink Boat Regatta’s events will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. We choose BCRF because:

  • BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the US with an A+ rating from Charity Watch and 4 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator, donating 91 cents of every dollar to breast cancer research and awareness.
  • BCRF provides critical funding for breast cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship.
  • In 2015-2016, BCRF will award $48.5 million in annual grants to over 240 scientists from top universities and medical institutions around the globe.
  • BCRF funds top researchers and doctors right here in our own PNW community.

Come for the kickoff party. Join the celebration dinner. Then WATCH as we turn Seattle’s Lake Union into a sea of pink for breast cancer research this September.
