    The 75th Anniversary Fleet will be adorned with boat names as chosen by donors or group of donors.

    The alumni sailors of MIT have traditionally honored their enjoyable memories of sailing on the Charles River by supporting the many fleets of boats which have set sail from these docks.

    Today's and tomorrow's students will greatly appreciate your generosity in providing a wonderful opportunity for them to learn a dynamic skill that will last a lifetime.

    This fleet made possible by: Your Name Here!

    Full boat donations or Fleet gifts will proudly display a plaque inside the cockpit area for all users to appreciate your generosity.

    All donors or groups of donors are invited to name their boat as well. Historically, names have been chosen to honor a coach, family friend, interesting inspiration or person of admiration. The choice is yours!

    We invite everyone to attend the dedication of the new Dock and Firefly Fleet on Saturday 2012-April-28 at 09:00.
