Youth sailing will take place at Jacobson Park in Lexington.
If you have children between the ages of 8 and 12, our Opti’s are the perfect boat to learn the fundamentals of sailing. With the careful instructions of club members who have a commitment to teaching sailing, this is a great opportunity.
We need volunteers who are free to give some time and help expand our efforts to offer sailing classes to youth- no experience necessary and you don’t have to teach. We needs lots of support to make this safe and fun for kids: snacks, chase boats, ideas to make this fun, maintenance on boats, leadership training etc. We can use your help what ever you offer!
If you want to be involved in this important mission contact Chuck Emrich: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 859-270-2199.
