Safety and Education January 2018

ECSC Junior Sailor Reagan Lessick is currently down in Miami for the Orange Bowl International Youth Regatta.   Being as Reagan is used to training on flat water, she has been out for two trainingsails in the Atlantic. She is getting used to the difference of sailing in the Atlantic.  While a a bit nervous at first, she has quickly gotten used to the conditions and feels she is as ready as she can be for this event.  If you are unfamiliar with the Orange Bowl, it is a large regatta held in Miami every year between Christmas and New Years. Over the past generations, ECSC has sent numerous sailors to this event to learn and to represent our club. Reagan decided to make the drive down to Miami to gain valuable experience that she hopes will pay off this summer in the I-LYA series, as well as Junior Bay Week.  Reagan will be sailing with a sticker on the stern of her boat remembering the late Mark Gummer, who’s family generously asked donations made in Marks memory to be made to the ECSC Junior Program.

Day 4 the final day. She’s out right now about to go finish up the last races while we are loading up to begin the long drive home as soon as she is finished. Gotta say, so proud of her! She has been pushing herself to the limit each and every day, and then coming back for more again and again. She is exhausted, bruised, blistered, and sunburnt, but has been keeping a great attitude and is learning a ton! She says she is sailing better and faster than she ever has, and I see her growing in other ways as well that she doesn’t see herself….definitely worth the trip down here! Great job Reagan! ECSC Junior Sailing Team

It is still 2017, and we are already getting a few inquires about 2018 Sailing Camp!   Camp dates have not been set yet, but registration should be ready in late February.  Please keep an eye on the Sailing Camp page of the club website for more information as it is available.
