Hi All USA45 Racing Team Members,
The team is prepared and ready to race the RBYAC. This week the sailing team voted on their “Team Captain” to lead them. The recipient of the award is Peter Kinney. This award is a huge honor for Peter as it was voted on only by his fellow sailors. This award went to the sailor who has led by example this summer. Peter has worked hard in the gym, on the water, raising money, working on the boat and most of all doing what it took to make his teammates better and helping them when they needed it. Peter is the ultimate “team player”.
As you all know, Peter was injured last week so he will not be able to compete. This was a huge blow to the team and most of all to Peter. But, in true Peter form, he has become stronger through this and is back on the water helping the team do whatever they need to win the RBYAC. Thank you Peter for your efforts this summer and congratulations on being the Team Captain of USA45 Racing.
