The HdG Youth Sailing Program’s 2019 Season is Now Open

Hello campers, families, community supporters, and partners. Happy New Year.  Our best wishes and hopes for an early and warm spring for all.

Our board held it annual organizational meeting January 3rd.  We have kicked off program planning and fund raising for 2019, are building our instructor roster for the summer, organizing a base of volunteers, and assessing the fleet to make sure we are ready to go.  Our 2019 brochure is now available on the website and we are taking enrollments from families wanting to get an early start.

We are pleased to announce a number of new initiatives.  We are offering one day long mini-sessions during the week of July 4th, open to campers with previous experience so we can get out on the water immediately and have fun for a day.  We have expanded our instructional and safety fleet so we now have 9 Xcites to augment our Opti/SailCube pram offerings.  We have added a second C420 (and are actively fundrasiing to add a third) so we can teaching more double handed teamwork and boat handling.  We have three Lasers (full, radial, and 4.7’s available)  to use with the Lasers and Opti’s to teach racing fundementals.  We are excited.

Please let us know your thoughts when you have a moment.  We appreciate your input.
