Join IND events! San Diego Bay Parade of Lights

GOOD: We have room for one more couple for sailing on a 70-foot charter yacht for San Diego Parade of Lights.  Must be an owner or CEO of an EBITDA company or accredited investor.  Our group has some of the most wired people in San Diego as well as Venture Capital partners, EBITDA CEOs ($100 million plus valuations, and more).

BAD: It a little cold here in San Diego getting down to 60s for our cruise.

UGLY: We have amazing people on the cruise, but I need a bigger boat for 2019 feeder events.
