Good morning all ... I think most people would agree it is high time we said goodbye to 2020! As we close out the 2020 season, we are proud and humbled that we were able to accomplish so much under such unusual circumstances. This past year posed considerable challenges to our program; the pandemic resulted in a late start, and our groups were smaller to abide by each state's guidelines for social distancing. In addition, many of our regular government associated groups (VA and satellite centers) were unable to take any trips at all. Yet, despite the challenges of 2020, we were still able to complete 39 trips this season, enabling 199 deserving veterans to be able to spend a day out on the water.

Some highlights of this most unusual year included VAC's first 'head boat' trip, which took place on August 20 aboard the Mijoy out of Niantic, CT. The Mijoy trip enabled us to take out 30 veterans at once while providing ample room to safely distance. The feedback was so positive we're looking forward to doing something similar in 2021. In addition, 2020 saw the welcome addition of Capt. Chris Gergely of Double Trouble Sportfishing to our fleet. Capt. Chris fishes out of Westerly, RI, and his addition expands not only our fleet, but our season - Capt. Chris fishes well into November.

Tom and I would like to thank everyone in the VAC family for their efforts this season. We are all volunteers, and it really does 'take a village' to make this work. A special thank you to all those organizations (Warwick Police Department! Team Togzilla!) and individuals who donated to our program this year - we can't do it without you!

Be well everyone, and have a healthy, happy, and safe New Year. Although winter is upon us, we are busy planning for the 2021 season and look forward to seeing you out on the water!
Capt. Kathy
