Sailor of the Week - August, 2010
- Steve Benjamin Steve Benjamin set out to win last week’s 34th annual Around Long Island Race, a 190-mile race hosted by the Sea Cliff Yacht Club. Steve and his co-skipper Dennis Collins have won the race twice, most recently in 2008. They came up just short of winning their third title after placing second in their division. However, winning wasn’t Steve’s only goal.
- Don Whelan Don Whelan hadn’t sailed with his crewmate, Alan Johnson, in over a year. They decided to get some extra practice in prior to the start of the 2010 Huntington Lake Regatta. As it turned out, they did a lot more than test their boat speed and get re-acclimated before the big race. Don had his safety skills put to the test, and he saved lives in the process.
- Tod Reynolds Tod Reynolds made the most of his four years on the Northwestern University sailing team, both on and off the water. He not only made a positive impact on his own personal sailing career, but set an example for the entire collegiate sailing community.
- Jim Muldoon Last Week's Sailor of the Week: More than two dozen sailing and boating-related organizations, including the U.S. Coast Guard, Special Olympics Maryland, and US SAILING, recently joined together to honor James P. Muldoon, former president of US SAILING, avid sailor, and community leader.
