Brighton Auxiliary Rescue Unit Receives Donation from North Shore Reaching Sailing School 

In Community, Local
The Brighton Auxiliary Rescue Unit received a $500 donation from North Shore Reaching Sailing School. The donation will help with training and equipment costs. Andy McCabe of North Shore Reaching Sailing School said he is pleased to provide the support to the Unit and recognizes the important work they do rescuing boaters on the water.
North Shore Reaching Sailing School provides American Sailing Association certified courses and sails out of Harbourview Marina in Brighton. “We’ve had a lot of new students learning how to sail with us and we’ve seen a lot of new boaters over the past couple of years that haven’t taken lessons and needed help from BARU” Andy says. “We have a vested interest in helping to ensure boaters in our area are safe and that help is available if needed”.

BARU appreciates the donation from North Shore Reaching Sailing School and all of the generous support they receive from the community to continue their work Saving Lives on the Water.
