Torrential rain doesn’t dampen the true fortitude of sailing and financial aid to those who are greatly affected by 9/11. All calibers of salts donated their time, money, and skills to the spirit of sailing in Newport, RI last Saturday, October 3rd in the annual Sail for Hope Regatta. E.C. Helme’s Mx 20 "Spirit", the "The Cat Came Back" (Lincoln Mossop’ Swan 42 #4212 pictured above), Tom Rich’s top placing "Settler", and the 3 Reads (Ken, Brad, and Dad) on "Nepenthe" show their support. Thanks much to Matthew Cohen.
