The Fall Sailing School was a complete success, especially for our Junior Sailors! After 8 sessions of moderate winds they had a final challenge as the winds gusted up to 10 knots for their end of session “solo sailing” test.
All seven Junior Sailors completed the entire course and are now skilled in rigging sails, lines, rudder, tiller, centerboard, mast, boom, knot tying, and more. Solo Sailing Certificates were presented by Coach Kurt Bopst, to: Camille Buss, Ryhlee Rogers, Stella Guenther, Cloe Klotz, Angela Marino, Gwenyth Marino, and Maxim Camboulives.
Congratulations to all youth sailors, our ‘Daring Dolphins’ and ‘Racing Rascals,’ who are now all eligible for Green or Red Fleet Opti Race Teams at Opti Regattas.
Coming up soon! Youth Spring Sailing Days / March; St Augustine Youth & Big Boat Regattas / March; Adult Sailing Lessons / February.
