Paul Cayard made a special stop at the St Francis Yacht Club for the annual Olympian Support Committee Dinner & Auction, during his brief visit home between Legs 4 and 5 of the Volvo Ocean Race. Paul updated the full house on the Pirate team’s adventures thus far aboard The Black Pearl. On display in the lobby was Paul’s winning trophy from the 1997-98 Whitbread Round the World Race. Together with fellow auctioneers Bob Billingham and Russ Silvestri, the auction raised funds in support of StFYC Members striving for gold in Olympic Sailing.
