That was my impression of the SYC Dave, but I wasn't willing to state that here since I was only observing, not involved. Glad to hear someone is taking up the challenge. Can you give us more info on it?
I got involved in the Sarasota effort when a delivery client got excited about the potential for legally going to Cuba. I managed to get some insight into SYC plans, offered some comments, my Rolodex, and some time to pound the halls at various government agencies in DC (I'm not that far away). They said they had it under control and shipped what might be described as a self-important request that was summarily dismissed.

I don't yet have a lot of insight into the National Sailing Hall of Fame effort. I know it exists and is ongoing and is being shepherded by people who seem to know what they are doing. I stumbled across that in coordinating another, nascent effort for a rally to Cuba.

sail fast and eat well, dave
