SFSUstudent2012 is Visiting

I am a member of a steering committee, for a class project, at San Francisco State University. The project focuses on small groups working with particular local neighborhoods, in order to develop promotional events that will attract sailing enthusiasts visiting for the 2013 America's cup to various districts in the city. The top 3 proposals will be presented to city hall, of which they will select one for implementation.

Our job as the steering committee is to collect data to help the groups. Since we are COLLEGE STUDENTS, we most definitely have NO MONEY, (LOL!)and cannot afford to purchase data.

Personally I have sailed maybe 2 dozen times in my life from 8ft dinghy’s to 65ft luxury tours: the last time I sailed was a 35' boat in Monterrey bay, with a friend and his dad. I hope to become more involved with sailing as my time frees up over the years, and my income increases.

Please Help Us Discover What Boat Nautical Enthusiasts Enjoy, and What Would Appeal to them When They Visit Our City By Filling Out This Quick and Anonymous Survey.

Thank You Sincerely for Your Time and Help!
MKTG443 Steering Committee S.F.S.U. Spring 2012

Please fill out our survey at the following url:

As an SFSU alumus (BS and MA, Marine Biology), I'm very glad to help.

I learned to sail (more or less) in the Small Boat Sailing and Maintenance course at SFSU (do they still have that course in Recreation and Leisure Studies?; for that matter, does SFSU still have R&LS?).

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

Thanks SBS,
Go Gators! I want to say that they cut that class, along with many others...maybe 3 years ago...at least that's my understanding. The CSU budget is as bad as the news reports; as a senior, I have seen many of the changes.
Thanks again for your help, and let me know if you are interested in the results.
Eric
