Well the second week of sail camp is about to come to a close, and the kids all seem to be having a great time! Our Junior team is performing well instructing the campers, and we have exposed over 30 young people to the sport of sailing in the past two weeks. Parents must be talking to their friends about the camp, because believe it or not, I am already getting inquires on when registration for next year’s camp opens! I have been taking some video and pictures for the website, and once I get some time to compile and edit it I will get it up there. Btu for now, here are a few pictures of the campers.
The Junior Race team has also been busy and placing well. In the I-LYA Junior Travelers Series, Cameron Douglas is currently 4th, Reagan Lessick is 7th, and Jonathan Schwartz is 24th out of a total of 44 boats! Great work team!
Each year the team races 5-10 Saturdays during the months of June, July and August, around Indiana, Ohio, New York lakes. July 17 we will land on the Island of Put-In-Bay, for Junior Bay Week, where the team will do battle once more. The regatta will consist of up to 15 races in 4 days on Lake Erie. Came has made this trip many times over the last 6 years, and this year will be his last, since he will age out. He has won 2 out 4 travelers series races. So we are believing he will show well at bay week this year and go out on top. Cam’s teammate at Junior Bay Week, Reagan, is a young 16 year old sailor. She is 5’3″, she is big on winning, and had been working out all winter. Reagan will be the force that will be pushing the boys this year.
Wish your Junior Team Well and follow them here!
