Dock project approaching completion!
Spending so much of my attention and energy focused on the construction project makes me miss paying more attention to sailing. This is one reason why I really appreciate our great staff. There's a reason why CBI received a lot of awards this past winter from the US Sailing Association. Thanks to the work of our program directors this winter we will see great programming again this summer. Just today we have a group of kids from two Boy's and Girl's clubs embarking on a week long course of sailing instruction - a jump start to the summer junior program. Last weekend CBI hosted an important high school qualifying regatta. Sign-ups for the Accessible Sailing Program are underway and the adult program will see a continuing emphasis on on-the-water instruction and advanced classes such a sailboat racing (Look to our class schedules on the web site to see what's being offered). While I honestly feel a little pride for all of us in the new facility, I am most excited about what we will do with it in the future. It's no mystery - we're gonna turn more and more folks, young and old, into sailors. Think of that song " What the world needs now....(more sailors!)
