Summer Fun!

Summer sailing is in full swing and June 21st marks the first official day of summer. Word on the street is that every club program in town is FULL – which is AWESOME for sailing in Charleston! This summer our program has 260 youth signed up with another 50 participating in our Learn to Sail classes with Charleston County Parks & Recreation Commission. With over 300 kids these numbers are record breaking and in addition we have a new fleet of boats on order that plan to arrive mid-August. Hope your summer is off to a great start too!
