We've got a team of parents and sailors led by Debbi Fincher helping to organize this year's fundraiser. There's always lots to do and it feels great to put this into gear earlier than we have in the past.

Thanks guys!

We had 12 sailors out this evening for our first Summer Sailing session. Conditions where a perfect sunny and 8-12kts of breeze. Technical issues meant we had to race around crab pots but we ran three good races and had some close racing at the front between Per/Leah Black and Dave/Timmie Mountford.

Results from the Evening:

1. Dave/Timmie
2. Per/Leah
3. Alana
4. Zack/Jacob
5. Gib/Erika
6. Austin

And we'll do it all again next Tuesday!

Sailors. The boat shed needs organizing after the sailing team's Spring season. Peter will be guiding a 1 hour organizing effort before the Community Sailing which starts this Tuesday. If any of you can show up an hour early (4 - 4:30PM) to help get the boat shed squared away that would be most appreciated! We need at least 4 able bodied sailors to make quick work of it. Thanks, Gray ... See MoreSee Less

The fabulous Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp & Bateleur Camp team recently joined Africa Foundation in the local community to do a clean-up of the increasing litter problem at a nearby shopping mall. The ever-growing rubbish is posing an immediate threat to the local parks, wildlife and the safety of young children. Thank you team for keeping the Mara clean! #EmpoweringCommunities #EnablingConservation #CareoftheLand #CareoftheWildlife #CareofthePeople

San Juan Island Sailing Foundation added an Team photo shoot. ... See MoreSee Less

We've had a request to retake the team photo and see if we can get the 2 missing sailors (the entire team) in the photo. This can be challenging to achieve, but we will try once more. Sailors, if you aren't planning on sailing tomorrow (Thursday), but have time to come for the team photo just before setting sail please come get your photo taken with the team. I'd also like to see if I can get some of our sailors around the new FJes with the Community Foundation and Collins boat side names for the newsletter. Probably on their dollies before being put in the water. Make sure your teammates know we are taking photos in case they don't get this event notice. Thanks! Gray

The 2016 High School Sailing team fundraiser is on May the 5th this year. We are lucky enough to have Jake Beattie, the creator and lead instigator of the Race to Alaska presenting for us. If you haven't heard Jake talk or read his writings (the R2AK entry Bio's for example), he is great fun to listen to and its going to be an interesting topic.

Please share this event with anyone else you know who may be interested in the R2AK or supporting the high school sailing team.

Thank you!!
