Update on 11.11.23:

We just received some exciting news from Steve Thomas of the Hawaii Sailing Foundation!  After the success of the movie screening of the "Melges: The Wizard of Zenda", at the annual HSF fundraiser on November 4th, HSF plans on holding another movie screening, FREE, for our members after the awards banquet!

This documentary highlights the 50+ years of the notable yachtsman, Buddy Melges, on his remarkable life in sailing and beyond.  If you have sailed the Melges 24 here in Hawaii, then you are already familiar with the name, the icon, and his family's production company.  Read more about the film here, or about Buddy Melges here.

Although the award ceremony will take about an hour and a half, we truly hope you will stay and enjoy watching the movie with us.  This will be the only time available for the movie screening of "Melges: The Wizard of Zenda".

** Reservations are closed.  All seating and dinner tickets have been sold out.
