Yachting can bring out the best in us

ADVERTISEMENT

I really enjoyed the article, “Stew’s service not just for charter guests,” [ page B8, Oct. issue] chronicling Jodi Samuel’s participation in a volunteer project in Africa. Yachties are often doing good things like this and I think they should be commended for it.

I know several stews who have done volunteer work for the Boys and Girls Club, helped out at animal shelters, made generous contributions to Women in Distress Centers, participated in Spin-a-Thons and other athletic events, helped clean up our beaches, served holiday meals at shelters, delivered many items to homeless shelters that were perfectly good but destined for the Dumpster, built homes with Habitat for Humanity, and helped out with countless other non-profit and charity organizations.

It sounds like Jodi has had a varied and interesting background and would bring a unique perspective to the yachting world. She is a kindred spirit, since she worked for two of my former bosses and she is into yoga. As a yoga instructor myself, I firmly believe it can change your life.

We in the yachting world are very fortunate. It is gratifying to see people are contributing to those in need, adding value to the lives of others and serving on a higher level.

Keep up the good work, Jodi, and all of you yachties.
