Richard B. Ross College Bowl - September 26, 2015

 

About College Bowl

The 11th annual Richard B. Ross Memorial College Bowl will be sailed in Boston Harbor on September 26, 2015  out of Courageous Sailing in the Charlestown Navy Yard. The regatta was established in 2004 by Judi Ross Zuker to commemorate the life of her husband Richard Ross. A passionate sailor and a believer in the transformative power of education, Richard took great pleasure in cultivating a love for sailing in others. Though his life was tragically lost in the attacks of September 11th, 2001, his family continues to honor his zeal for sailing and education by providing generous support to the Courageous Sailing Youth Program in his name. Since 2009, the Richard B. Ross Memorial College Bowl has been a fixture of the New England college-sailing circuit, and draws some of the areas top teams.

More than a Sailing School
Youth Program
At Courageous, not every child wants to learn how to sail, but every child is given an opportunity to grow. One particular 9 year old, Maddox, is not as interested in learning how to sail. But he loves to be on boats, particularly standing on the bow of a Rhodes 19 and feeling the sea spra...
