SDYC Visits the Team

This afternoon we hosted the Board of Directors of the San Diego Yacht Club and their families for an up close look at the BOR 90 and a tour of our team base. Larry, who sailed on the 90 today, greeted Commodore Andy LaDow, expressing his and the team's appreciation for the Club's support during the 15 months we have been based in San Diego. Russell was surrounded by the SDYC junior sailors who were accompanying their parents, and after a photo op, Russell asked Julien Di Biase (SUI, logistics) to run the kids out to the yacht (at its mooring) on a chase boat so they could go aboard. Needless to say, the junior sailors were thrilled, and they will have an interesting experience to share with their friends at school on Monday morning.
