Delta's Donna Piercy, whose son
Sam, 10, is a standout athlete, feels that sailing provides important
social opportunities that are critical for youngsters.
"He just loves being around
all the wonderful young people you have working down there,"
she said. "Sailing has increased his awareness of what's
available and what people can do.
Sam's only 10, so you can imagine
how it might feel as a parent to watch him set sail. It's a source
of enormous satisfaction due to the absolute confidence we have
in the wonderful volunteers and the equipment."
