Three couples and longtime friends - the Kinleys, the Ballantynes, and the Wights wanted to do something fresh and out of the box during covid. Since they are all involved in the boating and the sailing community, they found this unique boat competition, Sailing Through the Winter Solstice, the City of Frederick, MD hosts every year from November through March. Two years ago, they took the plunge and entered a boat on behalf of Colleen’s Crew Great Strides team.
The boat, lite up in neon green, was adorned with the CC's classic Shamrocks and 65 Roses. Throughout the course of the event, the boat is viewed by hundreds of people and the boat with the most votes win the competition. Not only did Colleen’s Crew raise over $17,000 from this year’s event but they took home the win for the 2nd year in a row. This unique fundraiser not only raised funds for the CFF, but also tremendous awareness over the course of the five months.
On behalf of all at CFF and the Maryland Chapter, special thanks to the Kinleys, the Ballantynes, and the Wights for their creativity, dedication, and hard work on the creation of this year’s boat. Well done!
