The company you keep

Scuttlebutt 2824 had a story about how Florida yacht broker Robert Moran pleaded guilty Tuesday to filing a false tax return to conceal more than $3 million in UBS account. There have been so many bad UBS stories, and that they have been culable in most. Therefore, it is hard to even embrace a feel good story like the one below.

SAN DIEGO — Seaforth Boat Rental and UBS Financial Services will sponsor the third annual Heroes Sail event on April 25.

Volunteers from Seaforth Sailing Club, The Rock Church and UBS Financial Inc. will welcome active-duty Marines aboard Seaforth Boat Rental vessels for a three-hour cruise through San Diego’s Mission Bay.

Nine to 10 boats from Seaforth Boat Rental will be used for the event, which has had a big turnout each year, organizers said. Marines who have returned from serving duty overseas and others preparing for deployment have participated in the past.

The Marine “heroes” will meet their captains for the day at Seaforth Boat Rental’s Mission Bay location at 1641 Quivira Road. The boats will depart the docks at 10:30 a.m. and return for a barbecue lunch at 1 p.m.

For more information on how to volunteer or participate, e-mail Christina Antonuccio of Seaforth Boat Rental at
