Floridians and Dawn Riley

Matt Graham (left) and Kirsten Corneliussen (middle) with America's Cup sailor Dawn Riley (right) at the North Star Sail Club "Saving Sailing" seminar.  Matt and Kirsten spoke on the panel with Dawn Riley to describe the efforts that college sailors take to promote sailing among younger age groups.  Matt Graham, Kirsten Corneliussen, David Oliver, Britt Wedenoja, Rachel Barch, and Ellen Dubois headed to Florida over spring break to not only get some pre-season sailing in, but to practice with the local high school teams and get them interested in college sailing.  The group made the front page of the local paper.  To view the article and photos, click here.
