Hannig Cup - 2019


Calling All Sailors… and Friends of Sailors!

This year’s 13th “Give Something Back” Hannig Cup event is on Wednesday evening, August 21, 2019 at Sequoia Yacht Club. A pirate’s treasure of over $120,000 awaits charities if you plot your course to rendezvous with our fleet!

It all started simply enough on September 13, 2006 when a SYC member had a birthday on a Wednesday, the traditional night for sailboat races at Sequoia Yacht Club. The idea started with several members and a friend. What if, instead of getting birthday gifts, we used the race as an opportunity to give back — truly the best boating tradition?

Please be sure to mark your calendar and make plans to attend the 14th annual Hannig Cup at Sequoia Yacht Club.

Racers attend Wednesday night sailing on August 21st with races for both speed and most dollars raise for charity. Our sponsors will contribute up to a total of $100,000 to two charities based on participation to the theme name or theme color. This year it’s Rockin’ Regatta and the theme color is BLUE.  Each participating sailor, guest and Boat demonstrating the theme or theme color earns $500 towards our total of $100,000!

This is the give something back race were sailors compete with real and virtual books to raise money for charity. The boat -real or virtual- to raise the most money for charity by 7 PM on Saturday, August 24 the trophy. 

Join us for a Rockin’ party on the deck on Saturday, August  24 at 6 PM at the yacht club. Live dance music with Red Vinyl!

100% of the $20 pre event  ticket price is donated to the yacht club’s youth sailing program. 100% of the sale proceeds from an opportunity drawing for a cruise to Alaska or the Caribbean goes to the Sea Scouts and the Mariners. Other donations go to PYSF to help their program. These are just some of the givebacks from the event but it only happens with your participation and support!
