Thank You BTR Supporters !

Over 80% of the funds raised by TISC’s 2012 Big Team Regatta went directly to scholarships and programs because of the many gifts in kind provided by our land-based supporters.  Please frequent them, and thank them again for us.

The day started early with registration and briefing.  Everyone enjoyed the fresh-brewed coffee from Peet’s Coffee at 1776 4th street in Berkeley. I particularly enjoyed the double latte on my ride home Friday night after returning the large coffee thermoses that provided a kick start to everyone earlier in the day. 

Of course the Noah’s Bagels were a perfect match for the coffee.  Thanks to the Noah’s team near Fillmore& Sacramento in San Francisco for the morning bagels and muffins.

Liz Felando is an instructor at TISC and on the Cal Sailing team.  She prepared the scrumptious chocolate and pumpkin cupcakes we all enjoyed at dinner.

Lagunta’s Brewery in Petaluma goes out of their way to support many community activities. The keg we enjoyed after sailing was courtesy of their team. Stop by for a tour the next time you’re in the area – makes for a fun afternoon.

After the racing we all enjoyed great food from Fine Foods at Home. Kara Forman and her team donated a portion of our dinner, which was excellent.  You too can enjoy their food by ordering on line then picking up dinner at one of their three locations at the 24th St Cheese Company, the NOPA Home Service , or the Noe Hill Market.  You can use their interactive map to see their locations.

TISC supporters have a wide range of unique talents that not only made the day possible but also added to the enjoyment during and after the event.

Thanks again to Rich Jepson and the entire OCSC Sailing School.  They were the enablers for this day of sailing, fellowship and fund raising.  Special thanks to OCSC instructors Ashley Tobin and Jim Watters.  They donated their time and special skills to support BTR.

Scott Keck provided his time as our DJ during the presentations and for music after.  And Roy Miller once again provided hundreds of quality photos for participants and sponsors to enjoy.  His photos are on the TISC Facebook page HERE.

Many volunteers from Cal Sailing and OCSC helped with set-up, registration, on-the-water logistics, meals, and clean up.  THANK YOU ALL

From On The Cove, Dave G
