Manic Monday: David Rockefeller, Jr.

Meet a sharp, engaging man who is a great friend to the environment and the sea.

The name “Rockefeller” may not seem to mesh with “Manic” Mondays, but we wanted to make sure you saw this video of the 2013 YachtWorld Hero. Known for his dedication to the environment, ten years ago David Rockefeller, Jr. founded Sailors for the Sea to help recreational boaters take better care of our watery playground.

After meeting Rockefeller at the Miami Boat Show just before Ian Atkins presented him with the award, I was impressed by both his calm demeanor and his engaging warm style. You can see what I mean by watching this interview.
