Help make Fazisi great again!

A call for help from Yury Raul, FAZISI new owner:

       Literally two weeks ago, I became the owner of the yacht Fazisi. I saved her from being cut in pieces. Fazisi is the only yacht from the Soviet Union that sailed The Around the World Whitbread Race (now Volvo Ocean Race) in 1989-90 with legendary Skip Novak on board.  Team was mixed nationalities from USA, Soviet Union and other countries.  The legendary Fazisi does not need a detailed presentation, she is well known to sailors around the world. I am trying to raise money to save her. This Yacht is priceless piece of History and should be preserved. After hurricane Irma it was badly hurt and left in shallow waters to be scrapped. Anyone who can help, please donate.  My friends and I trying to rise it from the dead, so we can take it to another spin around the world. Legend never dies.....
