united we stand

A statement from the crew of Uncontrollable Urge following the tragic events which unfolded during The Islands Race in SoCal this past weekend

As we try to piece together the horrific events of Friday night and early Saturday morning, the crew of Uncontrollable Urge wants to express their appreciation for the support of the sailing and land-based communities at this difficult time. We are all grieving and share in the loss of  Craig Williams, a beloved family man and team member. There are no words to express how much Craig meant to each of us, and we know how much his loss is felt in the Williams family.

We would also like to thank the US Coast Guard for their assistance and professionalism. Without their heroism, the outcome of this tragedy would have been much worse. Thanks also to San Diego Yacht Club, Silver Gate Yacht Club, and Newport Harbor Yacht Club for their assistance and understanding. Lastly, we ask that people donate to the memorial fund that has been established to assist the Craig Williams Family. The fund can be found here.
