Ficker Cup


The Long Beach Sailing Foundation's mission is to encourage and promote national and international amateur sailing and to facilitate maritime education and community sailing opportunities. We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, formed to own, maintain and manage a fleet of identical Catalina 37 sailboats donated by Frank Butler, the president of Catalina Yachts, for use in Long Beach Yacht Club's signature event, the Congressional Cup.

Throughout the year you will see and hear about our programs designed to support STEM education, sailor development and community outreach. These programs are made possible through the support of our donors and through our partnerships with Long Beach Yacht Club, the US Sailing Center and many members of our local sailing.
