The emphasis this year again will be Safety, FUN, and
Learning...... Students are expected to provide their own boat (Opti or Laser) or make arrangements to rent one from a friend. While we will expect to do well on the water again this summer sailing the Optis', the program has acquired thru donations the use of a Laser (or two) for any of our more advanced Opti sailors who may be considering a move up in class of boat - those of you who's family may already own a Laser sailboat and who's child is of the right age/weight are encouraged to store your boat at the club as you would your Opti. Please don't forget a proper fitting USCG approved PFD!!
