Guests enjoyed taking in sunset and water views, while raising funds for The Clagett and the Clagett Boat Grant Program.

In 2017, the Clagett Boat Grant Program awarded two Canadian sailors a 2.4mR each, one of which will be racing at The Clagett later this month. The year before, the program awarded a Sonar to the Y-Knot program in Lake George, New York which was granted to community sailing programs for use by disabled sailors.

"We are thrilled that, through the generosity of our guests and supporters, we are able to announce we can purchase two boats for the Clagett Boat Grant Program this year," said Clagett co-founder and president Judy Clagett McLennan.
