Homecoming a Hit for Returning Sailors

Shawne Perkins '98 held for ransom up the mast!
Class of '98 Sailors at the helm of Genuine Risk

Under gray skies last weekend a large contingent of Alumni Sailors converged on the waterfront. On Saturday afternoon the Waterfront hosted the 3rd Annual "March-On, Sail-Off" Where Alumni Sailors head out on the sound instead of the football game. This years ride was the 90' super-maxi Genuine Risk. About 30 Alumni joined Midshipmen crew for a trip on the Offshore Team's flagship. Shawne Perkins '98 even volunteered to be hoisted up the 125' mast. His gracious donation to the waterfront was sufficient to allow his safe lowing to the deck. Thanks to everyone for returning- and you're welcome back any time.
