Military Outreach...Free Sailing for Military

The Coconut Grove Sailing Club in Miami has developed a 'Military Outreach Program' to thank our military. We offer free sailing and sailing lessons to all active military. Credit for the program goes to Nick the Sailing Director.

Military Outreach

'Moon Dancer' did her bit last week by taking the Captain and officers of the British Royal Fleet Auxillary 'Fort George', a 37,000 tonne repenishment ship, sailing for the afternoon in Grenada WI.

Please tell any military people you know of our program.

That's a great thing you are doing for the soldiers.

I would imagine you have contacted the military bases to let them know?

Lets not take this thread down the "phoney war" path. You know better Anjou.

Great idea Moondancer! We need to thank those few who serve all of us.
