Sponsoring Safety-at-Sea Seminar
McMichael Yacht Brokers have been involved with the Storm Trysail Club's and Storm Trysail Foundation's Hands-on Safety-at-Sea Seminar for years and has provided support craft and volunteers to act as instructors and safety observers. For the May 20, 2017, SAS Seminar McMichael Yacht Yards & Brokers has stepped-up our support of the program by joining the ranks of official Seminar Sponsors.
SAS Seminar Chairman Charlie "Butch" Ulmer said of he McMichael sponsorship, "Since Storm Trysail became involved with this Seminar, Howie McMichael and many of his brokers and yardmen have provided invaluable equipment, time, and resources, enabling our seminar to evolve into one of the best Safety-at-Sea programs in the world."
Howard McMichael, President of McMichael Yacht Yards & Brokers noted, "Since my father started our company over 82 years ago, our mission has been to serve the sailing and boating community...in terms of providing them with quality boats, maintaining and repairing them, and helping our customers (who are also our friends) learn how to be safe on the water. We want all sailors and powerboters to be able to enjoy their time on the water to the fullest, and part of that is knowing how to be safe. This program is the best way I know of to teach people what they need to know to make the most of their time on the water."
This year's Storm Trysail Hands-on Safety-at-Sea Seminar wil be May 20, at SUNY Maritime College, Bronx, NY. For more information or to register online click HERE.
