Leukemia Cup Regatta

The Leukemia Cup Regatta was started by the Leukemia Lymphoma Society as a means to increase awareness and raise money for cutting-edge blood cancer research, and hopefully help save lives through the art of sailing. Since the Leukemia Cup Regatta first began, this action-packed series of boat races has seen tremendous growth and heartwarming participation. There are now more than 45 nationwide Regattas held each year, where over 11,000 people donate their time, money, and support for the greater good of sailing for a cure.

The Moorings is proud to have been a part of this life-changing fundraising event for the past 10 years, but we are especially honored to be named as a national sponsor for the 2017 Leukemia Cup Regatta.

One Cup at a Time

Lead by Caribbean locals and sailing musicians Stell and Snuggs, One Cup at a Time is a model grass-roots campaign that addresses a major global issue — plastic waste. Upon observing the massive amount of single-use plastic cups in the British Virgin Islands alone, Stell and Snuggs began brainstorming and came up with a solution: produce and distribute stylish metal cups to BVI visitors that can be used at bars and restaurants, thus minimizing the total number of disposable cups tossed in the trash each day.

The Moorings will help make this happen by handing out one of those reusable cups to every guest that comes on board in the BVI. Through social awareness, financial support, and conscientious vacationers, we will be able to dramatically reduce plastic waste and keep our oceans clean for generations to come. But we need your help! Visit this page to learn more and help fuel the funding for this one-of-a-kind campaign.

Pack for a Purpose

We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community of your travel destination. If you save some extra space in your suitcase and bring supplies for a local charity in need, you'll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.

Our flagship marina in Tortola has partnered with the Family Support Network (FSN) to aide its efforts in the British Virgin Islands and beyond. FSN works to assist individuals, couples and families affected domestic violence or any form of abuse in intimate partner relationships. By packing any of these needed supplies, and simply dropping them off at The Moorings reception area, you can support

a worthwhile organization and continue your vacation with the knowledge that you have helped others in need. Please visit this page to see what supplies are needed for our project in the BVI.

Thanks to the success of Pack for a Purpose in the BVI, we’ve partnered with our base in St. Lucia to help another local charity, the Caribaid Foundation. This nonprofit organization is made up of members who’ve pledged to dedicate their time and energy towards the happiness and prosperity of young, single mothers. Learn what you can pack to assist the Caribaid Foundation on this page.

Partnering with non-profit Ocean Foundation’s Hello Ocean project is a unique and rewarding privilege for The Moorings. By providing state-of-the-art sailing yachts to Hello Ocean, scientists and researchers are better able to conduct scientific research relevant to the project’s ocean conservation initiatives.

Sailors of the Sea

The Moorings is a proud partner of Sailors for the Sea, a leading conservation organization that “engages, educates, inspires and activates the sailing and boating community toward healing the ocean."

The Moorings Interline Regatta, held every October in the British Virgin Islands, pledged its commitment to clean waters and shores by participating in Sailors for the Sea’s Clean Regattas program. By implementing new measures like a Recycling Program and providing oil absorbent marine pads for each boat, The Moorings heightened environmental awareness while preserving the ecosystem more efficiently than ever before. We are proud to have earned both Silver and Gold-Level Clean Regatta Certification from Sailors for the Sea.


In 2014, we took things a step further by not only adhering to Clean Regatta Best Practices, but also raising funds for Sailors for the Sea in the process. Our partners from Lagunitas Brewing Company were on hand to sell their award-winning microbrews and donate the proceeds to this fantastic organization.

We thank you for your support, and look forward to continued growth with our sustainability programs.
