Thirty-seven survivors of the Boston Marathon Bombings joined us for the 4th Annual Wicked Strong Sail and Cocktail Party on September 11th.
Many thanks to Mass Eye & Ear Infirmary for sponsoring the lively cocktail party at the Eastern Yacht Club that followed this sensational day of sailing and camaraderie!
Thank you again for hosting such a wonderful event. It’s truly inspiring what you and the team do to (help) kids who are going through a difficult time, forget and enjoy themselves. My kids couldn't stop talking about how amazing the event was. Zaid, in particular, was just thrilled and he slept with his pirate hat next to him and took it with him to the hospital this morning to show the nurses and doctors. He hasn’t spared any details about the event from throwing water balloons to driving the motor boat to the magic show. Again, just an outstanding event!
NEWPORT — Anyone who has been sailing on Narragansett Bay knows just how therapeutic it can be.
At 53 feet, 44 tons, and at 7.8 knots, the polished wooden sailing yacht cut through gentle waves and a steady wind before tacking. “Ready about!” The distant words from a crew member could be heard followed by “Lee to helm!” The bow of the boat passed through the wind, sails flapping until they filled with air, heeling the boat over on its new course.
Many thanks to our Contributors and Supporters for a beautiful evening!
