Everyone who reads these pages knows the program trying to raise the bar on keeping teens interested in sailing, and we promote everything we can about those Mudratz. Monday you’ll get to hear a full interview with one of those plucky teens, but for now, check out this Mudratz-produced promo for their signature race – the Volvo Secor Fisher Island Race. And if you have kids in the right age range and within a few hours, do them a favor and get them entered.

We are massive fans of the Mudratz, and of their unintentional discovery of just how to fix that problem we’ve all been asking about for more than a decade: “How do we turn junior sailors into lifelong sailors?”
If you haven’t followed the kids from Mystic (and beyond), take this opportunity to peruse their recent history here. They’ve got a team of kids racing at the Melges 24 Worlds in Miami, and to celebrate, they’re auctioning off Charlie Enright’s genuine, brand new, autographed Musto/Team Alvimedica HPX Smock from the last Volvo Ocean Race. It’s live on eBay with the auction set to end this evening – 100% goes to the team’s 501(c)(3) charity fund, and we encourage you to get over there and bid it up right now. Hell, at the current bid of $435, it’s cheaper than retail. Let’s raise some money!
Your auction price will be a tax-deductible contribution, and it comes at the perfect time for your 2016 tax year. Get over there now.
