Write to Be Heard: Triton scholarship

Time has come to discuss rotations
Great article about rotations. (Originally published online from the Antigua CHarter Yacht Show, it is reprinted on pages A14-15.)
I keep wondering how to make it work in our size range. I have some captains willing to do it but the owners in our size range just can’t seem to fathom it.
It’s a good topic for regular discussion. I’m sure it will grow in the future.

The Triton hosted its 6th annual Poker Run and networking at West Marine on Dec. 5th and raised three times the previous donations toward the Triton “Nautical News” scholarship at Broward College.
Broward College has a 24-month Marine Engineer Management training program, which is an accredited program, taught by industry professionals, to give students practical knowledge needed to care and maintain the complicated systems on today’s yachts and superyachts.
The money raised in the latest Poker Run amounted to $4,500, which was matched by Broward College and the state, giving the scholarship a total of $9,000.
Education is the key to success for both the student and the industry if we can assure a high level training it will reflect well upon the professionals involved.
National Marine and West Marine challenged each other and each donated $1,000. West Marine also gave away prizes and gift cards, including a GO Pro camera, a television monitor and a Simrad handheld VHF. Bluewater Books and Charts donated a gift basket filled with a variety of items.
Overall, another great event organized by The Triton to support the industry. It was very well organized from a rider point of view and well hosted by National Marine Suppliers and West Marine.
Thank you to all who supported this event and its success. I was impressed by the amount of money donated to Broward College.
Capt. Adrian Gordyn

Editor’s Note: Thanks for the shout-out Capt. Gordyn, but thanks especially for coming to the poker run and playing. It’s because of people like you being generous that we were able to raise so much. Donations are still being accepted at www.browardcollegefoundation.org/named-funds.
