Thank you again to everyone who donated old sails to the Sailing Foundation this fall. As in the past, the Foundation give all the sails to Seabags of Maine to recycle them into various bags. In return for all of the clubs donated sails, SeaBags provided the Foundation with a number of different bags made from our very own sails for use as a fundraiser. This year, the Foundation got a number of different bags:
2 Ensign Large Totes
2 Laser Totes
1 Laser Duffel
1 Flying Scot Tote
4 small bucket bags (2 Ensign and 2 Scot)
Generic totes from Seabags retail for $160 on up plus tax and shipping. Their duffel bags go for $195-$245+ and the standard bucket bags go for $45+. This is without the cool fleet insignia and even cooler SLSC provenance! As a fundraiser for the Foundation, the Foundations is asking for $150 for the totes, $175 for the duffel and $40 for the buckets. Please reach out to Mark Welcome to purchase a bag.
If you have old sails that you would like to donate for next years collection, please let us know. As always, thank you very much for all the ongoing support of both the Sailing Foundation and the Sailing School. We simply couldn't function without it.
