A Family Sailing Story- Brett & Katie Langolf

Sailing Family Story- the Langolfs
(Cleveland, OH)- Commenting on how their family has adapted to the new world order, Brett Langolf explained,

"When our race boat had a pack ‘n play crib lashed to the keel bolts we realized we approached things a little differently than other new parents.

The adventures of living, racing and being a family on our sailboats for the past decade have instilled themes and tactics that unknowingly prepared us for the unexpected- a quarantine.

We look forward to sharing stories of life on the water and relating them to the world's current status in the midst of a global pandemic."

Brett and Katie Langolf have created a non-profit organization called "More Kids On Sailboats". Their goal is to create more awareness for the next generation of sailors by offering them opportunities to be part of a sailboat crew and to build future leaders through sailing.  Here is a nice video promo they put together for their organization.
