The toy drive will run until Monday, Dec. 2 with Great Smiles delivering the toys to Rady Children’s Hospital by Dec. 6. For each toy dropped off, donators will receive a raffle ticket to be entered into a drawing for a $50 Target gift card.

RECORD continued from page B1 boat racing at an early age, following his mentor and uncle, Roger Hook, to numerous circuit and offshore races. Alongside his uncle, Hook co-piloted and competed in his first race, the Dawlish 100, in 1974. “It’s the old challenge of man against machine, but it’s a bigger challenge of man competing with Mother Nature,” Hook said. “The ocean is the strongest force out there.” The longtime Del Mar resident moved to the beach city in 1984, where he established Dataskill, a data analytics and software engineering firm with former Del Mar Mayor Dave Druker. He became CEO of SilverHook Powerboats, a company he co-founded with Michael Silfverberg in late 2010.

“At some point, I’d like to come back and break the record in a SilverHook, our own brand. That’s the plan,” said Hook, who holds dual citizenship in the United Kingdom and the United States. “I think I could knock quite a bit of time off that time.” In the meantime, Hook has several races planned, including races in Italy and Key West, Fla. Although he’s frequently racing around the world, Hook said he is always happy to come home to his wife, Janet Wilson, his 25-year-old daughter, Jessica, and Del Mar. “I’ve traveled all over, and I’ve discovered that there is no better place to live than in Del Mar,” Hook said. “I love it here.” For more information, visit and

YOUTH continued from page B1 by 2015. To help achieve this goal, the organization held its 13th annual gala on Oct. 19 at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines. Nearly 400 people raised almost $500,000 at last year’s event to support local and national Natural High programs. “My goal is to turn kids around and get them focused on their natural high, not on drugs,” said Sundt, who noted his natural highs are family, business and surfing. “We’re trying to create a cultural norm so when kids are in a peer pressure situation where they’re being encouraged to do some stupid stuff, they say, ‘I’m on a natural high,’ and every kid there knows what that means and it’s a cool thing.” For more information about Natural High, visit
