Kathy is the inspiration for Grandjean sailing ventures! First, she papered the walls of baby Brian’s room with sailing ships and world maps. What better atmosphere for a young boy then to sleep beneath the starry sky and dream he was aboard a sailing ship, travelling the world…Kathy continued to encourage Brian that he could be anything he wanted when he grew up. Next, she gave Bruce a Sunfish for his 40th birthday. This was the ideal training vessel for both father and son… Then, she agreed to a charter sailboat vacation in the Caribbean. The hook was set!
