Another successful ECSC Junior Sailing camp is in the books with 50 students attending the camp between the two weeks! The weather was some of the best we have had for camp in a while, and all the kids had lots of fun AND learned a lot about sailing. As hoped, we were able to conduct camp operations pretty much at the new Junior Sailing pavilion, which made it nice for both the camp staff & campers, as well as any members who were using the club facilities. This has been a great addition to the ECSC club grounds, and doubles as a junior workout area the rest of the summer. The kids are already looking forward to next years camp, and we have a few campers interested in taking additional lessons. That’s one of the main goals of this camp is to introduce youngsters in the area to this sport and hoping they get a bit of the sailing bug, helping the future of sailing as a whole. Who knows, one of these kids could be a future regatta winner for ECSC Junior Sailing!
The ECSC Junior Team is in full regatta mode, competing in 5 regattas last month, and three including I-LYA Junior Bay Week in July. We wish the team good luck at the upcoming regattas! Reagan Lessick is the only competitor from ECSC going to Junior Bay week, if you want to keep track of progress of the week long regatta results will be posted on Notice of Race
here. Happy Sailing!
