Junior sailors manned the BYC MSSF information booth under sunny skies at the BYC Opening Day on Saturday, May 12. It was a great opportunity for the sailors to showcase their adventures, talk about their upcoming plans, and generally inform interested event attendees about the Foundation and its mission.

An inflatable dinghy, generously donated by Tradewinds Marine, was silent auctioned to raise funds for the Foundation’s Junior Sailing Fund, and many other supporters made donations as well. A huge thanks to Tradewinds, our auction winner, and all those who offered their support. And special thanks go┬áto Karen Luttrell for organizing the troops, the junior sailors themselves for proudly sharing their passion for sailing, and to ARC Costa Mesa for their donation of graphic display boards.

Next fund raising event is the Bilge Bazaar at Minney’s on June 3rd! Donated boating treasures now being accepted. Don’t miss the fun and great bargains!
