Safety and Education June 2018

The ECSC Junior Team had two regattas within the past month. The first being at Indianapolis Sailing Club in May. The team spent the windy and rainy first day pushing themselves to match the needs of the weather. Day two of the regatta brought no wind, the races abandoned and everyone sent in. Reagan Lessick took 1st, Abbie Binzer with a 2nd, Jack Hadlock got 3rd, and Olivia DeGrella rounded out the team with a 4th. Great job! The second regatta was this past weekend at Alum Creek Sailing Association. This was the first regatta of Travelers Series circuit. Competition is tough this season, bringing out the best in our sailors. There were 28 boats in the fleet, one of the best turnouts for the opening regatta in a few years. Grant Goff placed 13th overall, his best finish being a 4th. Abbie Binzer came out with a 17th overall, her best finish being a 9th. Jack Hadlock got a solid 26th overall, his best finish being a 24th. Awesome Job! Reagan Lessick did not compete since the regatta conflicted with her High School Graduation. The team hits the road again this upcoming weekend for Berlin Yacht Club the 9th of June. They also have regattas on the 16th of June at Erie Yacht Club and on June 20th at Edgewater Yacht Club. Wish them luck as they continue their circuit! The ECSC Sail Camp is quickly approaching!
The last two weeks of this month will have the campers learning all about sailing and we are looking forward to teaching them about sailing!
