McCrae Giving Spirit

Sailing at McCrae is great fun because there are people here that actually want to teach you how to sail.  It's not that they are being paid to, or told to, but because they want to.  They just love sailing. I'd like to say thank you to some of those people for helping me to put together a Laser from pre-loved parts recently.  Each of these people donated different parts for the boat, sometimes on request and sometimes just because they just heard about my project.  Thank you to: David Lawrence, Joey Randall, John Mason, Simon Merritt and David Grace.
It's great to be part of McCrae Yacht Club when the members are such helpful people, thank you.
