Yacht Crewed By CU Reps Is Set To Sail
A crew of credit union community sailors will be aboard a boat captained by Honda FCU CEO Jim Updike when it participates in this year's Race for the Kids, also known as the Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race. Seeking to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network, the goal is to surpass the $11,000 raised last year. This crew of 10 aboard the 48' boat will include, in addition to Updike, Matt Flynn and Brian Scott from The Members Group in Iowa; Bill Enslin of Creditor's Insurance Services; Tom Swedberg and Tim Sidley from Wescorp; Kevin Kindschi from CUNA Mutual; Charles Clark from LBS Financial CU, and Ken Facer from Arrowhead Credit Union. Each crew member is contributing toward the expenses. The 125-mile race is from Newport on April 23. More than 600 boats participated last year.
