Description

Sea-Legs is hosting a benefit event at Mystic Aquarium on April 26. The event's celebrity speaker is John S. Johnson, chairman of OpSail 2012CT. Mr. Johnson is planning to take the audience "Inside OpSail" by discussing the background of this highly successful international maritime event. He brings vast experience as a participant in America’s Cup campaigns, as a former chairman and founding board member of the International Yacht Restoration School, and as a shipyard owner.

Serving Eastern Connecticut, Sea-Legs invites cadets aged 9-17 and their mentors aboard their boats to learn the joys of sailing. Sea-Legs promises adventure and teaches key life skills. On-the-water and on-shore maritime activities provide real-life situations that help Sea-Legs cadets learn the importance of teamwork, gain self-esteem and grow more independent.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. All proceeds benefit Sea-Legs. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.
