Oct. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- Stamford, CT -- Justin Smith, a 12 year old sailing enthusiast, is planning to solo across Long island Sound. A skilled multi-tasker, he's soliciting sponsors and donating the proceeds to an environmental project that will help clean up the Sound.

With October 20 slated for his trip (dependent on weather conditions), Justin will sail from Stamford, Connecticut to Oyster Bay (an 8 nautical mile passage) in an 8-foot Optimist pram sailboat. His dad, Brian, will follow in a chase boat. Justin has already raised over $1,500 for the project. He has a Facebook page:
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Justin-Protects-the-LI-Soun... and is accepting donations by check made out to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and mailed to Justin at P.O. Box 176, Locust Valley, NY 11560.

Landfall, a leading purveyor of marine safety& navigation equipment, along with Magic Marine, a manufacturer of sailing apparel and gear, are helping equip Justin for his journey.

Among the items Landfall is donating to Justin’s cause are a wetsuit, thermal spraytop  and thermal micro-fleece pullover top, all manufactured by Magic Marine.
