Hood River Dad/Daughter Team To Sail The Pacific

A Hood River father/daughter team will be racing a 27-foot sailboat in July from San Francisco to Hawaii to raise funds and awareness of an organization that prevents children in nine countries from being forced into the sex trade.  Stan Perkins and Kerry Hallyburton have frequently sailed on the Columbia River, and now they will compete in the Pacific Cup to help Remember Nhu, an organization Hallyburton helped build safe homes for in Thailand in 2011.  The race begins July 7 in San Francisco, and Hallyburton says they expect it will take two weeks to make the journey.  Updates on their trek will be posted a Facebook page: sail for remember nhu..
