“As a South Florida local, born and raised, it came natural to take to the water where I knew I would fit right in. Now after numerous trips to the Bahamas and endless days in the yards I can only think back in awe to all the great people I’ve met and all that I’ve learned from the South Florida yachting community. Now I must trade in my bare feet for boots, taking with me all the knowledge you gave me and proudly serve in the Worlds Greatest Navy. I ship June 3rd. I am a future United States sailor.”
