Dear Clearwater,

It makes me happy to see my daughter, a former crew member, have this outlet and purpose, sail and environmental education. Seeing the close connection binding her and my grandson, over a thing that binds her and I, a former tall ship sailor as well, makes me realize how important organizations like Clearwater really are to keep family connected over generations.

When I think about how even when I am gone, because of Clearwater, sailing on tall ships will be second nature to my grandson, I can’t help but smile. I hope you enjoy these photos too!

Clearwater is a part of my family’s future, it can be a part of yours too.

Thank you for letting me share my story,
