Thank you, thank you, thank you!
$52,000 raised for the Gulari / Sayre Olympic Campaign
The movie premiere was amazing and Harken World Headquarters was a perfect venue. Thank you Harken, yet again for your amazing hospitality!
Gary Jobson did it again! An amazing documentary with superb commentary. Nobody can do it like Gary. He and his team spliced the film together and mingled in interviews with the Mystery Guests while showing the racing action. You could see the smiles on everyone's faces were truly genuine as they all described what we already know - scows are amazing boats and our clubs have created something very special that the rest of the sailing world is a little envious of. Thank you, Gary, for being a part of this again and helping us share it and thank you to the NCESA for raising the money to make it happen!
Prior to the movie, Gary held a Q & A session with Bora and Solvig. It's clear that they sail for the love of the sport and were a little bashful at all the attention we poured on them. Then, the auction began and we quickly raised $26,000 for their Olympic campaign, which will be matched by the Windmark Sailing Foundation for a total of $52,000 raised! On behalf of Bora and Solvig, a sincere thank you to everyone!
