2021 Junior Kick Off and Sailing Seminar


What a fantastic weekend.  We had 30 juniors who participated in the sailing clinic and over 35 juniors help with the boat wash.  Both the clinic and the boat wash were huge successes.  This was also a time for our juniors to bond again after being away from JrAYC sponsored events for over a year.  They left off right where they were in 2019.


Our boat wash raised over $1,650.00.


 $1,650

  

Special thanks go to Kathleen Willis and Jennifer Garrett.  They were instrumental in making this a big success.  Claudia Bolles and Isabel Ospina provided us delicious lunches for all the juniors and adult volunteers both days.  Nile Hatcher was so amazing helping us move boats Saturday and making sure they all went back to the correct spot (hopefully).  Charlie Clark, Steve Mitchell (also provided music), Mike Garrett, John and Susan Weiler, and Doug Folk, thank you for putting in extra time to make sure the boats got some what clean.  Thank you Conner Milam for your help in planning.  And a big thank you to all those who over paid for a boat wash.  Thank you.


Thank you Sammy Hodges for an amazing seminar.  We are all in awe of how good you are at coaching kids.  You have a true talent and gift.  Thank you for sharing that with our AYC Junior Sailors.  Thanks to Trixy Hanson.  A beautiful person who came up with the idea in the first place and made this seminar happen because it was exactly what was needed after a year of no junior training.  Thanks to Rita Fullick and Steven Mitchell for working a safety boat when needed.  Thank you Barry Hasty for setting up the rib and having it ready to launch.


And finally, a HUGE THANK YOU, goes out to all the juniors who participated this weekend.  This is your program we raised money and it is your efforts that will make the Junior Yacht Club a success.
