Junior Halloween & Regatta Schedule

posted Oct 10, 2017, 9:53 AM by AUGUSTA SAILINGCLUB

What an amazing regatta!  Thank you to all of the families that helped. We are so proud and excited to have had 12 of our juniors participating. Thank you also to Eli Putnam, Dan Bagnoni, and Marcus Moehlman who have been working with our juniors and helping to improve their sailing skills.

 

Next up is the Midlands Regatta, a SAYRA Junior Grand Prix Event, in Columbia, SC on November 4th and 5th.  This is a great opportunity for us to represent the Augusta Sailing Club.  We will be traveling as a team and need at least 5 juniors to commit to racing BICs.  I need to know ASAP who will be able to go.  Attached is information about camping and hotels. Keep in mind this is only an hour and a half away.  If you know for sure that you are going, please let me know by today.  You can register at https://www.regattanetwork.com/clubmgmt/applet_registration_form.php?regatta_id=15496

 

We are also scheduled to go to the O’pen BIC Midwinter Championships in Charleston, SC on November 18th-19th.  This will be a combination of traditional and fun races.  It is going to be a blast!!! If you are interested, let me know so that we can reserve you a boat.  You can then register at  https://www.regattanetwork.com/clubmgmt/applet_registration_form.php?regatta_id=15527  For those who are planning to go, I seriously recommend also registering for Midlands, as it will be great practice for this regatta.  

 If you have any questions or if your child needs a ride to either of the regattas, please let me know.  

 Otherwise, I hope to see you all this Sunday at 3pm for practice.

 Have a great week!

Junior Day on The Water

posted Aug 16, 2017, 2:13 PM by AUGUSTA SAILINGCLUB   [ updated Aug 16, 2017, 2:16 PM ]

What a great turn out this past weekend!  Hopefully, everyone enjoyed sailing the new BICs.  Make sure to mark your calendars, as we will be starting Sunday practices for all Juniors interested in improving their sailing skills on September 10th at 3pm.  Each week we will have a different topic, as well as some drills and fun games on the water.  All participants must bring a coast guard approved life jacket and have a parent on the premises.  If there are any parents willing to volunteer, please email me.  

 

We are also hoping to get several Juniors to race in the upcoming Labor Day Regatta on September 2nd and 3rd. For more information and to register go to labordayregattaandpigroast-1.  If we have enough participants, we will try to have a separate Junior course for the Sunfish and O’pen BICs.  In order to prepare, there will be a special practice for all Junior Labor Day participants on Sunday, August 27 at 3pm.  We will go over racing rules and have some practice races, as well as answer any questions.  Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested in racing the Labor Day Regatta, so we can make arrangements for boats and courses.  

 We look forward to seeing you on water!

Junior Sailing Program kicking off. We introduced several kids to sailing and looking forward to two new member families. Some want to sail Spring series and Castleberry. Next junior get together is May 30. Contact George Bowen or Eli Putnam.     Dan Fodera

Juniors...this Saturday, May 13th is the second race of the dinghy series. We would love to see as many of you out there as possible. There are several Sunfish that you can use. Just let us know if you need one, and we will help get it rigged. My kids had never raced before and enjoyed themselves at the last one. It's a great, fun opportunity to practice sailing. If you have any questions, please contact me. I'd be happy to explain the registration process. Hope to see you there!!          Kim Bagnoni

Members the juniors need your help! We want to create a list of members who are willing to provide mentoring to juniors. This would include taking them sailing or providing instruction to those interested in racing. Please respond if you are interested in working with our juniors.      Eli Putnam828-384-8072eli      Putnam@Yahoo.com
