US Sailing and Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky announced its six finalists for the Old Pulteney Maritime Heroes Award. The award recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to their sailing community. A public vote is now being held at www.maritimeheroes.com and is open until December 16, 2012. One winner will be honored at a gala event on January 23rd during US Sailing’s National Symposium in Clearwater Beach, Florida.
I stronlgy suggest you vote for Bruce Bertucci. Bruce created the Perth Amboy High School Sailing Team and implemented the summer program which is open to all aspiring sailors. It makes a huge difference for these kids.
Bruce in his own way is saving sailing.
Full disclosure, Bruce is good friend and crew-mate.
