THE SOLA® COMPANY
Motivated by his own personal journey to lose weight and improve his overall wellness, Dr. Bosarge founded The Sola® Company in 2012 and enlisted his personal chef, Ryan Turner, a culinary expert in low-carbohydrate diets, to help create a healthy sugar replacement that was easy to cook with and didn’t have the aftertaste of artificial sweeteners.
After two years of testing and development, Chef Ryan hit upon a blend of ingredients that, when combined, taste, bake, caramelize, and measure just like sugar. Named Sola®, the non-GMO sugar substitute became available to consumers in November 2016.
Early clinical studies of Sola® have shown that it suppresses insulin levels (and, hence, the likelihood of diabetes) by suppressing the amount of fructose and glucose in the bloodstream and suppressing glycemic levels. As a result, Dr. Bosarge expects Sola® to play a major role in helping to reduce the over-consumption of sugar and reverse the growing rate of obesity and diabetes.
Sola® is available through Amazon.com and will be available in late 2017 in select stores.
SUPERYACHTS (MARIE, TENACIOUS, AND P2)
An avid mariner, Dr. Bosarge has been sailing since he was a young boy. Today, the Bosarge family has three world-class superyachts owned by family trusts. The superyachts are available for charter by travelers looking for the ultimate luxury sailing experience.
The idea for Marie was first born in 2007, when Dr. Bosarge sketched his initial ideas for a custom-built boat that combined the classic lines of yachts from the 1920s with the modern comforts of today’s superyachts. Working with a team of preeminent ship designers and builders including Vitters, Hoek Design, David Easton, Nigel Ingram, and Fraser Yachts, he created the 180-foot Marie.
Since Marie’s launch in 2010, Dr. Bosarge has sailed and raced the yacht extensively throughout the world. The Marie sleeps up to 10 guests, and offers numerous deck and outside areas for entertaining, dining, and lounging. Down below, Marie has a split-level main salon for formal dining and features a Steinway Baby Grand Piano. Marie also offers snorkeling, rendezvous diving, waterskiing, wakeboarding, fishing, kayaking, and sea scooters, as well as a crow's nest lift that operates hydraulically and can take two guests 123 feet up the main mast for a bird's-eye view.
Marie is well-known on the superyacht racing circuit, competing in various New England, Caribbean, and European Regattas. She has participated in 17 regattas and won four. She won her Class three races in a row at the 2015 Superyacht Cup in Palma, Mallorca, and was named Overall Winner of the Superyacht Cup in 2015. Marie also won the prestigious St. Barth’s Bucket and was named Overall Winner in 2014.
