Happy Thanksgiving

George Washington declared the first Thanksgiving Day Celebration in Nov of 1789, but it was Abraham Lincoln who created a standing national holiday in 1863 amidst a Civil War “…to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.”

Desert Wind Sailing and the Gibbs Family are grateful for all of our friends and family and we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving no matter who or how you choose to give thanks.
