Inspiration from the Pros! 

Hans and Riley from team USA dropped by TISC to speak with and inspire our Junior sailors before the SailGP Race. What an impressive weekend that was on the City front! 

They left a lasting impression and our junior sailors who now have a need for speed! Check out the video here.
