The University of Michigan’s sailing team has a fleet of 20-year old FJ and 420s, and they are quite literally falling apart.  With one of the most active Alumni groups in the US, it should be so damned hard to have decent athletic equipment for the sailors, but rather than bitch, the U of M kids are doing something about it:  They’re raising money by raffling off this cool radio control racer. More from Wolverine media kid Ryan Seago:

Painted in official U of M colors with a commemorative graphics package on the sails, this one-of-a-kind, 75th Anniversary Michigan Sailing CR-914 is worth $1200 and we’re giving it away!  Built by CPM’s David Ramos, all proceeds from this little beauty’s raffle will go directly to support the Michigan Sailing Team.

Raffle tickets are just $25.00 each, and we’ll be raffling the boat off at the Strictly Sail Chicago show at the end of January.  You do not need to be there to win! So please purchase your tickets now and help us get future University of Michigan sailors a little Christmas present:  New boats!

Get all the info on the raffle and buy tickets here, and follow Michigan Sailing on Facebook here.  And here’s a shot of the smiling kids.
