Yes, that is Hollywood superstar Sylvester Stallone, mugging for the camera aboard a megayacht. His “victim” is Capt. Simon MacKay of Enchantress. If you look closely, each is wearing a special wristband, supporting Cogs4Cancer. The charity, created by amateur cyclists in yachting, hosts annual fundraising rides to benefit cancer-focused organizations. Stallone and MacKay signed up to support this year’s ride, in October.
Cogs4Cancer is just one example, among many, of how superyacht owners, guests, and the industry are quite the opposite of the typical media and Hollywood portrayals. You can learn more about the organization (as well as Stallone and MacKay) in the July edition of the MegayachtNews.com newsletter, which just went out to subscribers days ago. Better yet, you can learn how to support it.
Also featured in the newsletter: news about A/V specialist VBH opening its first-ever American office; and the International SeaKeepers Society’s recent gala in Bermuda. Plus, we feature authentic Turkish towels by Grace DiMeglio (a.k.a. the well-known yachting journalist Grace Trofa). Pictured below, they’re available at a price exclusive to MegayachtNews.com readers, too.
