Well On Our Way: Raising Money and Hype

Sandy and his wife Helen recently attended Herreshoff Museum’s summer gala; it’s not often Sandy gets forced into a penguin suit! A “reverse auction” raised more than $30,000 for initial architect renderings to house our RELIANCE in all her glory! Wow, We’re on our way!!!!

Four US Naval Academy 44′ cruising boats with midshipmen and instructors visited the museum with keynote tours of our project. Halsey and Sandy were given a book to commemorate the event. The visit to Bristol was so successful that there are apparent plans underway for a visit next year!
