Winter Wonderland – The Awards Part One

Our annual conference culminates in a night of dining, dancing and awards, a.k.a. Prom Night. After three days of absorbing new ideas, learning new skills, meeting new people, and catching up with old friends, it is a night to celebrate achievement within our industry. What better way to do that than by getting all dressed up, celebrating sail trainers and programs, and shaking your groove thing to a live band (thank you Sunshine Symphony!).

First things first, we had the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE(r) Pacific Coast 2014 awards-
