Did you see the dolphins during the Heatherton Regatta this week? During the Opti Adv Heatherton Regatta there were dolphins swimming in the race course! This week we have a few exciting events! On Monday, Ken Legler will be working with our 420 class in the morning. The OPTI Regatta is on Tuesday, no classes. See below for timing and what it means for your sailor. The Junior Dance for OPTI 3 and above is on Wednesday night, details below.
Regatta Practice Day– This Monday, July 8th there will be an Opti Practice Day in preparation for the SIYC Opti Invitational, for Opti 3 and above. It will be from 12:30-4:00 (rigged and ready at 12: 30) for afternoon sailors and all sailors attending the regatta are encouraged to attend. Opti II sailors should come at their regular class time. The practice day will be a dry run of what the sailors can expect for the next day. This is very important for all regatta participants and for experienced sailors to fine tune their skills.
SIYC OPTI REGATTA: The Regatta will take place on Tuesday, July 9th. If you still have not registered your sailor, please visit www.pgjsa.org and do so today. It is an all day affair, so there will be no classes that day. We need volunteers for safety boats and to work in the yard that day. Please contact Finley Shaw at firstname.lastname@example.org .

Beach Day– Monday, July 15th , is our beach trip to Sagg Main. We will be chartering two school buses as transportation to and from the beach.

The bus is limited to Opti 3 sailors and up. We ask that Opti 2, Opti 1 and JY sailors are accompanied by their parents to the beach. Please note: Our instructors are only in charge of Opti 3 sailors and above, because of safety reasons. If we have space available on the bus, the spots will be opened up to Opti 2 sailors. **Space is limited so bus spots are on a first come, first serve basis** We will have water and some snacks, but we recommend that your child either brings a lunch or money for the snack bar. Siblings are welcome to come to beach day, but the bus is for program sailors only and children who ride with us on the bus are going to be supervised by our staff.
