2016 – Inaugural single week-long session which taught 6 area youth, using leased MacLaughlin SailCube Opti style trainers.
2017 – First full seven-session season program sailing from Hutchins Park through cooperation with the Municipality of Havre de Grace. A total of 59 students completed the Program, led by US Sailing Certified Instructors under Maryland oversight as a day camp using SailCubes and Optimist prams.
2018 – Second seven-session season sailing from Hutchins Park and using additional donated access to commercial space adjacent to the park for boat storage and maintenance. In 2018, the Municipality of Havre de Grace improved Hutchins Park docks to benefit our program and other waterfront recreational activities. 138 campers completed our course, with scholarship support being awarded to 19 campers, using community donations provided specifically for that purpose. The instructional fleet now includes Lasers, Club 420’s, Hunter Xcites, Optis, and SailCubes.
2019 – Third seven-session season program using the same venue as prior years. In 2019, we served 163 campers and awarded various levels of scholarships to 24 campers, funded again by community donations. We also started a performance sailing program using C420’s and Lasers and competing in buoy-course racing with the local Lightning fleet.
