Twelve luxury motor yachts will sail from Sag Harbor to Shelter Island on Saturday, May 22 at 5:00 p.m. as part of a charity fundraiser called "Boaters Against Cancer" held in support of Fighting Chance.

Most of the yachts in the fleet will take on four guests, while some accommodate six guests - which leaves plenty of room for social distancing. Each yacht will feature spacious cockpits and foredecks, so that Boaters Against Cancer will be an outdoor event. Refreshments will be served.

"I'm in the fleet with my own 39 ft. vessel, supporting the valuable services of Fighting Chance and participating in this celebration of Sag Harbor's dazzling waterfront," said Jim Larocca, a member of the organizing committee and village trustee. "This is the way our village rallies to help citizens gripped by tragic events like cancer."

Other members of the event leadership include Joe Ialacci, Bruce Tait, Tim Davis, Stu Schoener, Charlie Canavan, Brian Brady, Roman Roth, and Ray Smith. Financial sponsors of the event - each making a sizable donation and assisting with publicity are the yacht brokers and local marinas, including Yacht Hampton/Joe Ialacci (Lead Sponsor), Port of Egypt Marine (Major Sponsor), Mill Creek Marina, Brick Cove Marina, Ship Ashore Marina, Tait Yacht Charters, and Sag Harbor Yacht Yard.

Community members interested in sailing on one of the yachts can donate $250 to a reserve space. Fighting Chance, America's oldest and largest free cancer counseling center that operates on a regional basis, has had an office in Sag Harbor for 19 years providing support counseling to East End cancer patients. A second space was opened in the Phillips Family Cancer Center in Southampton.
