Sailing venture aims to bridge Middle East conflict

The Sailing Channel recently hosted several college-age Palestinian and Israeli team members from New Story Leadership for the Middle East for a daylong sail on Chesapeake Bay.

The Sailing Channel is providing free video production and web hosting services during the program's first year of operation.

This summer, New Story Leadership brought its initial group of Israeli and Palestinian students to Washington, D.C., for six weeks of leadership training and internships on Capitol Hill.

"Team building is a big part of the program and that's where sailing fits in," said Tory Salvia, president of The Sailing Channel and skipper of the host boat, Sparkle Plenty, a 1980 Mariner 36 (N.H.) sloop.

The Sailing Channel has produced 10 video stories, one from each member of the New Story Leadership team, about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
