On June 22nd, the Junior Sailing Program got started at Gull Lake Country Club! We have over 40 sailors registered in two classes and the weather has been great. Austin Lee and Grant Moore from the WMU Sailing Team are our lead instructors. Will Lockerbie and Jimmy Chadwick, former students in the Junior Sailing Program have returned as Junior Instructors. I am thrilled with their effort and enthusiasm!
The West Michigan Youth Sailing Association held the first regatta of their series on June 24th. There were over 50 boats that traveled from across West Michigan to participate. Gull Lake was represented by five sailors. For some of them, it was their first regatta ever. After a day on the water, we hosted a lunch and awards ceremony.
Our sessions will continue every Wednesday and Thursday until August 11th. Although our Intermediate sessions are full, we do still have some room in the Beginner sessions which meet from 9 am - 12 pm. Please contact me if you are interested in signing your child up.
