|Wisconsin's official flagship, the S/V Denis Sullivan will be undergoing major mast replacement prior to the 2013 sailing season and conducting a fund drive to raise funds for the project. Here is a portion of the notice sent to SSYC: "This spring, the S/V Denis Sullivan needs $12,000 to raise a new main mast. A few weeks ago, we launched a fundraising campaign with great initial success, but there is still work to be done...Thanks to the some generous support of loyal donors are matching each donation dollar for dollar until we reach or surpass our goal." A handmade bench is being crafted from the old mast which will be given as a thank-you gift and memento to the largest donor. Additionally, beautiful prints of the Denis Sullivan will be given away in a random drawing of our donors. Donation are tax deductable, the schooner's web address is www.schoonerdenissullivan.org.
