We, at Lady Patty Classic Yacht Charters are proud to have been a part of the 2nd Race ‘Round The Island last Saturday! While we didn’t win or even come close (last place actually) we certainly felt like winners.
We raised almost $1700 dollars for the Tilghman Area Youth Association’s youth sailing program. This modest sum would be put to good use by partially funding the purchase of Optimist sailboats, the perfect boat for a program such as ours.We feel great about that…but the best was yet to come.
After seeing the awesome front page article in the Star Democrat by writer and race crew-member Jennifer Allard we received a call from some very generous Talbot County residents offering us two pristine and fully equipped Optimists with dollys and rack. This amazing gesture exceeded my wildest dreams for our fundraiser. All I can say is thanks to those who helped set up the race/after-party, the racers who took part, the businesses who sponsored, Jennifer for her article and our amazing friends in Oxford for their gift. Thank you! Hopefully we can peak the interest of some of our youth to become the next generation of great, Talbot County sailors.
