Commodore (Race Director) Glenn Gaetano has "promoted" three veteran race volunteers to the rank of Captain for their outstanding efforts in supporting the race. John Saccu was promoted for his handling of race day logistics as well as his outstanding coordination of mailing services. Don Margiano received his "scrambled eggs" insignia hat for security and handling of the race course in Derby. He now has a bit of a dilemma as his day time job is sergeant in the Derby Police Department. The final promotion went to Information Officer Markanthony Izzo for the incredible job that he has done in promoting the race. All three received special USS Constitution hats.
Volunteers are key to the success of the race, and the committee is always looking for additional help - particularly on race day.
