    Two World War II heroes and a Miami Sailing Regatta that plans to honor them April 4th.


    Miami’s extensive sailing community, led by the Coconut Grove Sailing Club, is honoring veterans John H. Moynahan (93) and Taylor C. Larimore (91), by establishing a permanent trophy in their name: the Larimore/Moynahan Regatta Trophy. The cup will be awarded annually to the winner of the BBYRA’s PHRF Class Regatta on Biscayne Bay, this year to be contested on April 4 and Trophy presentation at the Coconut Grove Sailing Club that evening. Both men are avid sailors and long-time fixtures on the Miami racing scene.


    Taylor Larimore, born in Miami 1924 was a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne, fought in the famed Battle of the Bulge, spending Christmas of 1944 in a foxhole under heavy German attack before emerging as part of the victorious Division that helped turn the tide of war in Europe. He was eleven years old when the 1935 hurricane that swept through Miami blew a sailboat into his yard, and he’s been sailing ever since. Dedicated to introducing the sport to young people, he taught over 1000 youngsters the art of sailing and was named Instructor of the Year in 1992 by the American Sailing Association. Resides on Brickell.


    John H. Moynahan, as a young US Navy Lieutenant, served in the Pacific on the destroyer USS Ammen, subjected during the Okinawa campaign to a constant barrage of Japanese Kamikaze suicide attacks. His ship was among the first to enter Nagasaki harbor after the dropping of the atomic bomb. Resides in Coconut Grove.


    In addition to crewing on many of the leading racing boats of the last several decades, throughout the world, both men have been generous in their support of Miami’s youth sailing programs.


    Tax-deductible contributions are being solicited to fund sailing scholarships for underprivileged youth, in the names of these two outstanding men, and should be made out to:

    A very good day to you from warm, beautiful Belize. We get visitors from your neck of the woods, escaping the cold, so we’d like to get an email address to which we can send you a press release announcing the inauguration of a new sailing school here on Ambergris Caye in warm clear waters that offer what must be one of the most idylic small boat sailing venues in the world – particularly for training. Please send us the appropriate email address for you, so we can add it to our press list. Many thanks, Forrest

    My name is Alex Pugliese. I work with an aerial photography and cinematography company called Osprey imaging. I was curious to see if your magazine had done any articles on drone photography/cinematography. You can check out some of the sailing footage we have captured on our website, www.ospreyimaging.com . We were able to cover a few races this past season and plan on being a strong presence at races in the upcoming 2015 season. In addition to filming races and making marketing materials for clubs we also do individual boats modern and classic, cruising and racing.

    Nyack Boat Club Leads at Bart’s Bash World Race Event

    September 7, 2014


    The Nyack Boat Club, located in the picturesque river-front village of Nyack, New York, currently leads in the number of participants registered for Bart’s Bash with 122 members and 58 boats signed up for the September 21st race.


    Bart’s Bash, named for famed Olympic and America’s Cup racing sailor Andrew “Bart” Simpson, is organized by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF) and is set to be the largest sailing race in the world.


    With over 5,000 sailors registered to race in almost 700 venues across the globe, this event is raising funds to support the ASSF. Through sailing, the Foundation’s goal is to help young people develop life skills that will improve their ability to succeed in life and provide access to jobs and careers within the maritime sector.


    “We are thrilled to be involved in this record setting charity race and proud to be among the top clubs representing their nation”, said Amy Villalba, the Associate Event Planner for NBC. NBC’s members participate in a six month long schedule of racing at the Club as well as hosting local, regional and national regattas.


    The Nyack Boat Club, founded in 1909, is dedicated to recreational boating, the sport of sailboat racing and other related recreational pursuits on the Hudson River. The Club keeps dues and fees low through hands-on service by the membership and the year-round

    activities and programs are a vibrant source of entertainment for the members.

    Hello, my name is Curtis and I found your site online. I know you probably get emails like this all the time, but please read this entire email as this really could help your business. I’m a marketing consultant in San Diego, CA and I found your website online but noticed that for some of the major keyword phrases like "Stamford flood restoration” which gets searched over 1,500 times a month, you are NOT anywhere to be found on major search engines like Google.com. I wanted to offer to put your website on the first page of Google and you DO NOT HAVE TO PAY any monthly fees unless I can actually get you on the first page for your keywords.


    I know this sounds crazy, but I am so good at Search Engine Optimization I can make a guarantee like this. If you want more business from your website, then we should talk. I can also show you some of my happy clients who dominate Google. My prices are very affordable and there is NO RISK on your part because if I FAIL to put you on the first page then you do not pay any monthly fees, as I take on all the risk. I can get you ranked for whatever keywords you want! I am sending this email to 27 other contractors in the local area and the first one to take me up this offer gets it as I can only work with one type of business per city. So if you are interested then please respond asap so you can lock in your city!

    Hello Windcheck! Any chance we could get something in the September or October issue regarding the upcoming 11th Annual American Yacht Club High Performance Dinghy Open, sponsored by Heineken, to be held on October 11 & 12? You’ve carried some great articles on past years’ regatta, and this year’s event promises to be even more exciting, with interest already being shown by classes previously unseen around Western Long Island Sound (hint: think HOOT), as well as the usual bunch of crazies (Vipers, VX One’s,F-18s, WETA Trimarans, 505s, FDs have already registered).
