      Fantasy Sail Weekend

      The 2009 Fantasy Sail weekend really lived up to its name. The San
      Francisco Bay offered excellent sailing conditions with the beautiful
      skyline and Golden Gate Bridge as a backdrop. The host members from the
      San Francisco Yacht Club could not have been more gracious, and the
      Fantasy Sail committee did an excellent job with the events, food and
      logistics. We really enjoyed getting to know Gary Jobson, who made a
      sincere effort to socialize with all of the attendees and hop on
      different boats to help everyone improve their racing skills. We were
      one of the lucky ones who got a 2nd place finish with Gary onboard. It
      was also fun meeting different people from around the country who share
      our passion for sailing and the desire to help in the fight against
      leukemia.

      We became heavily involved in the Leukemia Cup Regatta 2 years ago when
      my 7 year old great-niece was diagnosed with ALL. She is near the end
      of her 26 month treatment, but it has been a tough road. We just pray
      that she will remain in remission for the rest of her life. While
      soliciting donations from my contact list, I was surprised to learn how
      many other people I know have been affected by this devastating
      disease. I also learned how truly important the Leukemia & Lymphoma
      Society is, not only for the funds raised to help find a cure, but as
      an invaluable resource for information and support.

      Kudos to Gary Jobson and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for hosting a
      great event and cause.
