Young Mariners

The Greenwich Young Mariners Foundation held their 3rd Annual Sail-A-Thon at Greenwich Point on Saturday, June 15. Eight children in this year’s Young Mariners Program went out for an afternoon’s sail  with volunteers from the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich and the Greenwich Sail & Power Squadron on board Russ Kennedy’s Mistral, Mitchell Goldberg’s Secret and Bob Kleid’s Suite Luxury.  Meanwhile Greenwich residents were able to enjoy free hot dogs and sodas and a prize drawing after their own activities on the water at Greenwich Community Sailing that generously donated half the day’s proceeds to the Young Mariners Foundation. Tom O’Connell, Greenwich Young Mariners Founder, declared the afternoon a great success with over $1,400 raised to support the kids learning to sail this summer.
