Yes, it is mid January, however Charleston Community Sailing is getting ready for our 2013 Summer Programs. If you are interested in signing your child up, all information and registration will be posted February 1st. If you are looking to coach sailing in beautiful Charleston this summer, please email your resume and references to Jessica Koenig, Executive Director.
We are doing it – making our first float for the Folly Beach Christmas Parade. This Saturday, December 8th is the Folly Beach Christmas Parade – YEAH!
To participate we need to line up starting at 11am on the causeway, but more importantly we need to decorate our float! Trying to get a group of people together Thursday afterschool/work, etc. The boat is at the ChYC and I have collected all kinds of neat stuff. An amazing float design has already been designed for Charleston Community Sailing – THANK YOU MATT! So let’s do some painting and spread the holiday cheer! Please spread the word – the MORE the MERRIER!
With Black Friday and Cyber Monday in our wake, today is known as Giving Tuesday. On Tuesday November 27, 2012 charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. We hope you will consider making a gift to Charleston Community Sailing this year, or come on down to the dock 12/1 at 10am to help us close the sailing center for the year. Thank you for all your support!
The forecast for this week is going to be close to 70 degrees, however the water is cold and we are wrapping up our sailing season. We need your help this weekend to help put the boats away till early 2013. Join us this Saturday, December 1st, starting at 10am for a work day. We will supply coffee, hot cocoa & donuts – the MORE, the MERRIER! Please let us know if you can attend! We can’t run out of donuts!
Sunday was cold, rainy and breeze was on – not ideal conditions for sailing, but the perfect combination for our 6th Annual Oyster Roast Fundraiser. We want to thank everyone who came out to James Island Yacht Club to support our mission of providing public water access to all. This event was a success due to our sponsors, business supporters, volunteers and all who came to enjoy the afternoon. We are grateful for your support and hope that you will continue to be involved and apart of Charleston Community Sailing. Wishing you and your family safe travels and a wonderful Thanksgiving!
