Yes, our old and cynical bones know that Valentine’s Day is a sick scam perpetuated on us by corporate behemoths purveying billions worth of flowers, chocolate, and horrible movies on all of us. But there’s something incredibly cute about young love, and our pal Anne at the King Harbor Youth Foundation sent us this adorable photo from yesterday’s practice along with the note below. Check out the KHYF here and donate something if you like what they’re doing. We do.
Attached is a photo of the Valentine’s Day proposal one of our high school racers made to his Valentine (also one of our sailors) during practice yesterday. It was a team effort to put the message on the spinnaker, and she said “yes.” Young nautical love; be still my heart! -Anne
