Fellow Sailor, Industry Veteran and YBAA Member in Need of Our Help

By Mike Titgemeyer, CPYB, Crusader Yacht Sales and YBAA Vice President

John Middleton, father, husband, sailor, yacht broker and all around great guy needs the boating community’s help!  On April 24, John collapsed while working on a boat. He suffered a massive brain bleed and spent the next 40+ days in ICU @ GW Medical Center.  John has recently “woken up” and has been relocated to a rehab facility in Annapolis, MD.   He has a LONG road to recovery both physically and financially.  John is a partner in Sail Annapolis, a small sailing business that handles the local Catalina dealer and used boat brokerage. There are mounting medical bills, as well as the loss of income while John recuperates.

John has been a fixture in the boating industry in Annapolis and throughout the East Coast for many years participating in many industry events. He has been an active YBAA member, CPYB and CPYB Endorsed Brokerage member.

Let’s rally the troops and band together to help a fellow industry colleague and YBAA member in need! This is a great family that needs our assistance.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the family’s benefit. Please give whatever you can — it WILL make a difference!
