Cocktails anyone?.....

Until we meet again....

 





WHAT: On Monday, December 3, CHRISTIE’S New York hosted an unbelievable evening of cocktails, dinner, entertainment and auction for an elite group of philanthropists, top clientele, and members of the sailing community, to raise funds for Sailors for the Sea and its programs to educate and engage the boating community in the worldwide protection of the oceans.

The five, one-of-a-kind fantasy lots up for bid combined with generous paddle raises from the audience helped to raise an incredible $779,350 (and counting) for the organization, far surpassing the original goal of $550,000.



Additional highlights of the evening included the opening remarks by Sailors for the Sea Founder and Board Chairman, David Rockefeller, Jr., and a panel discussion led by renowned broadcaster Charlie Rose with two of the world’s most prominent ocean advocates, Dr. Jane Lubchenco, Administrator of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, and Sir Russell Coutts, the most successful skipper in the history of the America’s Cup.


One-of-a-kind fantasy lots included:

§ One-week trans-Atlantic crossing on Cunard’s luxury cruise liner, the Queen Mary 2, with five-star accommodations at Duke’s St. James London Hotel, a gourmet meal at Wilton’s restaurant, and return flight on Virgin Atlantic

§ One-week cruise on the Sea Cloud I or II, complete with jewelry from Tiffany & Co. and a special dinner with David Rockefeller, Jr. and acclaimed actress Glenn Close, who has a special family connection to Marjorie Merriweather Post, the original owner of the storied yacht, s/v Sea Cloud.

§ a luxurious escape to the Maldives on award-winning service from Singapore Airlines

§ City of light and contrast: luxury travel and experiences throughout Paris and Venice

§ Auction will also include paddle-raise bidding to fund Sailors for the Sea’s programs to save the oceans

ABOUT SAILORS FOR THE SEA:

Founded in 2004, with offices in Newport, R.I., and Yokohama, Japan, Sailors for the Sea is a nonprofit organization that educates and empowers the boating community to protect and restore our oceans and local waters. The organization has reached over 200,000 people through a variety of educational programs and highly visible sailing events. Among its many programs, Sailors for the Sea develops free environmental lesson plans, called Rainy Day Kits, used by sailing instructors and teachers to explain ocean science and teach the principles of environmental sustainability to more than 20,000 young sailors and students. Sailors for the Sea reached more than 120,000 sailors worldwide, who have participated in Clean Regattas certified events, and is the Official Clean Regattas Partner for the 34th America’s Cup. Clean Regattas certification provides independent third-party verification that a yacht club, sailing program, or regatta is environmentally responsible, and is doing its utmost to protect the waters upon which people sail. The organization is also developing a sustainable practices program for the entire marine industry. In the future, Sailors for the Sea aims to unite the 12 million members of the boating community as Ocean Stewards to preserve the world’s seas for future generations.
