For over 13 years (~2006) Team Akula has been actively involved with the second oldest charity regatta in the United States >>>> The Mt Sinai Sailing Association's American Cancer Society Regatta.
Since 2012 we have made the podium every year, and placed 1st or 2nd with a shorthanded physical crew..... however as it has been our tradition to name and race with an extended VIRTUAL CREW of cancer warriors, survivors and posthumous crew of the brave who are killing and eradicating their cancers now, or have conquered cancers, or some who have battled nobly but passed on.
Please contribute and come along with Team Akula as we compete here online in our boat-for-boat fundraiser and also on the Long Island Sound battlefield this August.
Sadly in the last year I lost my life long friend and ex-brother-in-law John Floyd Belknap, and just recently a co-worker F. William Tilt. May they continue to rest with no pain and in peace.
