I have read about the races that have taken place at Junior Day. These races at the Melges 32 Gold Cup is always an interesting event to look at because I always like to see how people handle their sails, even in the midst of harsh weather. The second racing day in Fort Lauderdale especially stood out for me as one of the best days for sail racing. There have been a total of three races so far. Among the people that have raced in the event was Dick DeVos, a successful businessman and philanthropist who has been involved in many different ventures and has even been involved in politics.
Dick DeVos himself has been involved in many different charities. The DeVos family runs the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation which is a faith based organization. Dick DeVos has worked with the Amway Corporation starting in 1974 and he has worked his way up to Vice President of the company’s international division in which he has expanded the company into 18 different countries. He has also been the President and CEO of Orlando Magic of the NBA for a little while. He has used his business expertise in order to bring the company to greater levels of success when it comes to sales.
Dick DeVos has shown that he has a lot of skills when it comes to sailing. He has come in first place on the second day. The final day of the race was February 14. The racers got to deal with different weather conditions while they were sailing. Among the conditions of the sails were fluctuating breezes. However, the best sailors have proved that they can handle any type of weather condition that is thrown at them. Dick DeVos has shown that he is willing and able to take on anything.
