GRAND PRIZE – iPod Touch 8G

Captain John Enders, who sails on S/V Victoria out of Anacortes, WA. Capt. Enders had a sense of humor about his win, saying, “This is great news. I haven’t won anything since I was 13 (about a hundred years ago). It was a 45 of Barry Sadler’s ‘Green Beret’ ballad.” Well, he’ll be listening to Bert Sadler in style on his iPod Touch from now on!
