National Sailing Symposium

First, thanks to www.sailingscuttlebutt.com for posting an article about Team Chance on their front page! We received a lot of positive feedback from individuals and businesses. Our friends at McLaughlin Boatworks suggest we attend the National Sailing Symposium held annually in Clearwater, Fl to spread the word and network with others who are well immersed in the sport. After contacting the symposium we were offered the opportunity to be a presenter on Thursday evening, January 26. We will have a designated time to present Team Chance, meet others involved in the sport, and get feedback and support from others.

We are VERY excited about this opportunity, but we need your help to get there! In order for Team Chance to represent themselves at the symposium we need outside support to cover the cost of airfare, and food expenses for two. If you are able to help, please contact us at info@chancesailing.org. We know this event will help us tremendously and it will be beneficial in getting more kids on the water and having fun!

There is a beautifully crafted re-sail bag generously donated by Ella Vickers for whichever individual or company helps us the most to achieve this goal!

Thank you!
