Sailor Holiday Cheer!

Team NauticEd likes to have fun – like too many eggnog’s worth of fun when selecting our fearless leader Grant Headifen’s (Global Director of Education) holiday pic. Below, sharing some of our choices – Salty Sailor joking aside…

We wish you and yours a GREAT holiday filled with joy and laughter with family and friends.

Rudolf? This was a bit too comical.

Santa’s Helper? Not really, Grant’s the boss…

Not sure if this is a sailing Santa or Yeti. A bit too creepy.

Grinch? HA! Just right (smile)
