David Howard & Volunteers of Pan Am Sailing at Toronto 2015

The Toronto 2015 PanAm Sailing Regatta delivered what has been acknowledged by representatives of competing countries as the "best Pan Am regatta ever".  The feedback from athletes, coaches and participating country delegates was unanimous in praising the role of the volunteers who helped to make it such a memorable occasion. The “yellow shirts” were always smiling, helpful and hospitable, proud of Toronto and Canada’s role as host to the Americas.  David Howard, as the leader of the event organising team, would, alone, be worthy of recognition as outstanding volunteer, but he is always the first to acknowledge that he is merely one of a team and would direct praise and kudos to all in the team who made these games such an outstanding success.
