We are getting closer to sailing season with every passing day, so now is a good time to sign up for this summer’s ECSC Junior sailing camp! The dates of the camp this year will be June 20-24 and June 27- July 1. Participants can sign up for either week individually, or both weeks which earns a $100 discount. Register here! Register here!
I’d like to ask everyone to be on the lookout for kids that might be interested in joining ECSC’s Junior Sailing Team. Our current team’s youngest junior sailor will age out of the program in two years. That might seem like a long time, but it will be here before you know it. Last winter Junior Sailing added some brand new Optimists to our fleet of dinghy’s which are perfect for beginning sailors. These boats have their own fleets at I-LYA regattas and are the perfect place to start seeing what junior sailing is all about and you will meet a lot of great people from other area clubs!
Remember this time of year is a great time to take a look at the rigging, sails, and hardware on your boat. Take one of these excellent weather days we have been having lately to give your boat a once-over. Looking at your boat without the pressure of wanting to be on the water can help you see if there is anything that needs repair. There is still plenty of time to perform repairs so that this summer you can spend time enjoying your boat safely.
