Gary Jobson is a world class sailor, author,
ESPN commentator and a very funny and
engaging speaker. This talk will be of interest
to all saiiors - young and old.

With accolades as diverse as an America's Cup trophy,
an Emmy Award, membership in the America's Cup
Hall of Fame and the president of US Sailing,
Gary Jobson is no small personality in the sailing world.

Through extensive exploits both on the water (as
a world class sailor), behind the microphone (as a
commentator for ESPN and NBC) and a wordsmith
(as editor of Sailing World and author of 16 books),
Jobson has built a detailed expertise in sailing over
four decades.

His talk at Roger Williams will focus on his days at
SUNY Maritime, where he was an All American sailor
three times and twice earned College Sailor of the
Year honors. He will also explore the vast array of
opportunities for today's sailors, including the
America's Cup, the Olympics and world-wide racing
and cruising.

This was an inspired talk to over a hundred people. Gary Jobson geared it toward next generation sailors and showed some amazing documentary footage he took from around the world. We feel honored here in Bristol to have had such an inspiring talk in our town. (Thanks Halsey for getting him here.) Thank you Gary Jobson for all you have done to promote sailing. You are definitely making a difference and a total winner in my book.
