Learn to Sail Programs for Local Youth
 


 

Jay Girls and Boys "Learn to Sail Program"

 

GLSC has initiated a YOUTH PROGRAM for the Jay, Girls and Boys Club. The Jay Girls and Boys Club program is to take them out on a sail boat & have them experience time on the water.  There will be 3 participants on each boat & each kid will be wearing  a life jacket.   Boaters, are needed, who are willing to take the kids on your boat for an outing on a Saturday. There may be parents & or sponsors that will be included.

If you are willing to participate contact Frank Beber at 918-791-4722 or sharon@grandsavingsbank.com.  

To date GLSC has had 5 new youth life jackets donated to the club, by West Marine, for this program.


 

Grove High School "Learn to Sail  Program"

 

This program is two fold.  First take them out for a sail, 2-3 per boat, to see if they are interested in learning the techniques of sailing and if they enjoy being on a boat out on the water. This will be on a Sat. and each will be wearing  a life jacket. After this initial outing, if they are interested in learning to sail, they will receive a safety course on a Sat which will cover us all  via state law. Then at the club, learn the basic sailing techniques so that they can crew on a boat for our events and races.

We need  your support to lend adult life jackets for these sailing trips.

If you are willing to participate in this program by offering your boat for a ride, contact Frank Beber at 918-791-4722 or sharon@grandsavingsbank.com.
