Aleta lives on
If you think you've spotted the bright-yellow hulled Aleta on the Bay lately with a dozen teens on board, you're not mistaken. The boat was donated to the Bluewater Foundation by Keith Brown. The Foundation, which celebrates it's 20th anniversary this year, is quite successful at its mission: "bringing the joys of sailing to San Francisco Bay Area inner city and at risk youth."
Aleta, shown above competing in the 2008 Big Boat Series, was built in the 1980's by none other than Cree Partridge. "It's great to see Aleta get some extended use serving kids with Bluewater Foundation," stated Cree.
