The ECSC Junior team and staff had a fun outing at the Lake Lemon Regatta on Sept 24-25th. While the competition was real, the team usually treats this regatta as some relaxing and fun time together. Most of us camped at Bloomington Yacht Club for the weekend, and even Wayne competed there, as he has for over 30 years!
Jon spent the weekend competing in the Finn, against Wayne, but Wayne remains undefeated against the Juniors. I guess he isn’t showing them all his tricks!
The two newest members of the Junior Team, Dunkin and Jack were also on hand to get experience sailing in their first regatta. Congrats boys! They got to see what it is really like to experience a regatta from start to finish, and they both did a great job! The boys have been training with Jon and were anxious to see what racing was really like, so this was a great introduction to them. They may be out at the Hornback, so if you see them be sure to say Hi! The Junior Team will now shift gears into prep for 2017
Thanks to Kenny, the site is graded for the new school shed area. The construction should start shortly . The new area is going to feature storage space, but the most anticipated feature is some combined teaching space for camp, and workout area for the rest of the time.
