Scotch Mist supports hospital effort

By Staff | Jun 4, 2009

LAHAINA — Scotch Mist Sailing Charters last week announced a pledge of financial support for the West Maui Hospital and Medical Center project led by the West Maui Improvement Foundation (WMIF).

Through June 30, 2009, 10 percent of each ticket purchased on Scotch Mist II will be donated to WMIF’s Hospital Development Fund.

“According to Captain Gene Perkins, he and President Joe Mayes have been looking for a way to show their support to this lifesaving hospital effort, and this synergizes with a generous challenge match fund-raising effort through June 30, 2009,” said WMIF President Joe Pluta.

“They encourage all visitors and residents to take advantage of this opportunity to have a great sailing adventure while contributing to a noble cause.”

Located on the front row of Lahaina Harbor, Slip 2, the Scotch Mist II offers sailing, snorkeling, sunset sails, whale watches (in season) and private charters for small groups only (up to 25 passengers).

Scotch Mist II is a Santa Cruz 50 sailing yacht built for speed and the 1984 Victoria-Maui International Yacht Race — she was first to finish. For her size, she is the fastest production line sailboat in the world. For more information, call Capt. Perkins at 357-1402.
