Happy New Year!
I thought I would just give an update with everything going on with the Sailing School for 2019.
Registrations: We’ll start with registrations. Our classes are posted and available for registration. For the Junior sessions especially, we urge everyone to sign up early so that you don’t get put on a wait list. If the session you would like does have a waitlist, please sign up. We always do everything we can to expand classes and clear the waitlists, but it really helps our planning if you sign up early and go on the wait list when necessary. Please click on the "Registration" link above to register for 2019 classes.
New Boats: The new fleet of Hartley 12.2’s proved to be a fantastic addition to our junior programs last year. This year we are currently in the market for a number of updated Club FJ’s for our Junior racing program. These new boats will be very competitive race boats and we are looking forward to seeing a large number of our Juniors out on the race course this season. This has been made possible due to the generosity of several groups of people. A number of members and school families were kind enough to donate several thousand dollars during December to the Saratoga Lake Sailing Foundation. The majority of the purchase was made possible by an extremely generous grant the the Foundation of $13,500 from the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust. We are so grateful for all the support that the Sailing School and the Foundation continue to receive year after year so that we can continually grow and upgrade our programs.
ADK Summer Sports Expo: Once again, SLSC will be at the ADK Summer Expo to talk about sailing. This year’s expo is on March 16th and 17th at the Saratoga Springs City Center. For more information, please go to https://www.adksports.com/summer-expo-attendees/ Admission is free so please come on out and chat about sailing with us!
Free Sailing Events: Once again we will be hosting a Summer Sailstice weekend where we will be taking people sailing just for the fun of it (and for free!). It is a great way of introducing people to the pleasures of sailing. Please feel free to sign up and let your friends and family know about it. This year’s Sailstice will be held the weekend of June 23rd and 24th.
112 days until Docks In 2019! Have a great winter.
