Erik Bowers Fundraiser

LMSS alumnus Erik Bowers and the Bowers Sailing Olympic Campaign are hosting a 2014 Laser World Championship fundraiser at the Excelsior Brewing Company on August 30th, from 5pm-9pm.
As a member of the US Sailing Sperry Top-Sider Development Team, Erik receives elite coaching and training but minimal funding. He has been donating his time to provide instruction to LMSS sailors in Optis, 420s, and Lasers. Your attendance would be greatly appreciated and would help advance Erik’s Laser racing efforts. He is currently battling Charlie Buckingham and Chris Barnard for the #1 US Laser class ranking. The top US Laser sailor at the World Championship in Santander, Spain in September will be named to the 2015 US Sailing Sperry Top-Sider Team.
Please contact Mark Bowers (Mark@BowersSailing.com) for more information about the fundraiser and how you can help Erik achieve his Laser Olympic racing goals.
