Week 3 is almost done! We had a great week, and started it off right on Tuesday with USA Day, the kids marching around to the Olympic theme song. Wednesday racing and post-racing BBQ went well! We have Wednesday Series Results HERE.
We currently have 420, Laser, and Opti sailors at the Hingham Regatta, and will be sending many sailors to the New Bedford regatta this weekend. Good luck all! Congrats to our very own Laser Race Team member and JI, Reid Shannabrook, who's boat finished the Marblehead to Halifax race 2nd in their class!
On the topic of ocean racing... reminder that sign ups for the Safety at Sea Seminar are at Pleon. The seminar is open to 13-19 year olds and is all day Saturday July 18. $19 for the first 30 Pleon kids to sign up, $39 for all others. A great opportunity to learn all about sea safety, and how to respond when something goes wrong.
