“Piper Flyer” Officially Commissioned

YSF sailors Daisy Tucker and JohnMark Gaponiuk join Piper Executives Simon Caldecott and Jackie Carlon

Piper Aircraft, Inc. was the first to jump at the chance to name a YSF racing boat when offered the opportunity at last year’s Rock The Boat event.  CEO Simon Caldecott and Marketing Director Jackie Carlon were present at the waterfront ceremony last week to commission their sponsored boat, the “Piper Flyer”, which will be manned this season by Vero Beach High School team members JohnMark Gaponiuk (skipper) and Daisy Tucker (crew). During the dedication, Mr. Caldecott spoke of the correlation between flying and sailing, which share numerous navigational and control skills.

Thank you, Piper, for your generous support!

Boat naming opportunities will be made available again this year through Rock The Boat sponsorship opportunities and during our live auction at the event on March 18.  For more information, call our office at 772-492-3243.
