The Secor Volvo Fishers Island Sound Race”Onboard Reporter” Award (OBR) is awarded to the junior crew that tells the best story of their experience at the Secor Volvo Fisher’s Island Sound Race. Colin and Samson entered their video from the sailing race that took place in August. Sam Greenfield from Oracle Team USA (America’s Cup) was the judge and he gave high praise to Colin and Samson’s video. “The competition was very tough this year, but I’m so excited to award Colin Madaus and Samson Race Dorfman from Thames Yacht Club this year’s prize” said Greenfield. He went on to say, “a lot of young filmmakers will fall into the trap of making a simple music video, but you (Colin and Samson) did the exact opposite. In fact, I felt like I was there for the entire day, for all of your ups and downs.”
Sam added, “Nice job and keep up the good work. You never know where sailing may take you.”
