The sailing community has come together to establish a fund in Spike Perry's name at the Seattle Maritime Academy where Spike was a student in the years 2003 and 2004. The fund will provide scholarship money in honor of Spike and the Perry family, helping deserving kids from the Perry's hometown waters learn more about sailing, seamanship and the region's rich maritime traditions
