Members of the Boston University Sailing Team dedicated an afternoon of their Spring Break vacation in Miami to helping Sails for Sustenance prepare sails for shipment to fishermen in Haiti. The BU team has spent the past week training out of the Ransom Everglades school, sailing all day in the beautiful Biscayne Bay.
The sailors spent Friday afternoon de-battening, flaking, and rolling sails in Peacock Park next to the Coconut Grove Sailing Club.
A big thanks is owed to Jessica Crowley for organizing the BU squad. Best of luck to the team for the remainder of the season. Go Terriers!
