  • 2009 1st Session Sailing Program News

    (YSP News - 15th July, 2009)

    July 15th 2009

    Hello-

    Here are some updates for each class-

    Recruits
    The recruits are making up for lost time. They are catching onto upwind sailing
    quickly. On Tuesday they were introduced to a race course, which they got used
    to sailing around. They are getting more familiar with optis and more
    comfortable with the water and general boat handling.

    Mates
    Last Friday, the Mates (along with the Skippers) had a great time sailing on big
    boats during Big Boat Day. We haven’t had this event in a couple years, and it
    was good to get it back in the schedule. Thank you for all of those who
    volunteered to take kids out! The Mates have also done very well with
    spinnakers and getting comfortable with racing. We have two sailing optis in the
    Lake Sunapee Regatta this week. All the mates are getting along really well and
    having a lot of fun.

    Skippers
    This group continues to be eager to learn and catching onto concepts quickly.
    The entire class is in five boats and one opti sailing in the Lake Sunapee Regatta.
    One boat will be heading off to the Northeast Junior Olympics in Northeast
    Harbor next week.

    420
    The 420 got back from the Hingham Regatta last week, and is off on Lake
    Sunapee this week. They have been falling back into racing well, and posting
    some promising results. They are off to Northeast Harbor next week for the
    Northeast Junior Olympics.
