It's been a long time since I have sailed one of the Leukemia Cup Regatta's. Its a great event raising money for a great cause. This year was a definite highlight in that I got to sail with some great friends onboard Bronco the M32. Owner Michael Dominguez is one of the nicest guys out there and he has an outstanding group. I was more than happy to jump in for the weekend and sail with these guys.
While the Volvo Ocean Race was in Newport I was fortunate enough to be invited by 11th Hour Racing to participate in the Volvo Ocean Summit. This was an opportunity to listen to such speakers as Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Knut Frostad and Wendy Schmidt. But one of the speakers that really stood out to me was the Senator's wife Sandra Whitehouse. Sandra sits on the board of the Ocean Conservancy and is a marine environmental policy advisor. I have included the entire video release by the Volvo Group but if you would like to listen to Sandra's speech forward to minute 33.
