Junior Sail Program – Rain Date In Effect

*** Due to the weather predictions for Saturday, the new date for the Junior Sail Program is now June 1st.  Read on for more details.***
It’s the Junior Sail Program! “Sailing takes me away to where I’ve always heard it could be just a dream and the wind to carry me… and soon I will be free”.  Those are the lyrics from the Christopher Cross song “Sailing”.  Kids have an opportunity to experience that freedom this weekend at Waukegan Harbor.
Thanks to Mother Nature, the rain date is now in effect.  The Junior Sail program in Waukegan will now be holding their Open House, Saturday, June 1, from 1:00 – 4:00 PM.  You will, however, still meet at Waukegan Harbor. Kids ages 5 thru 17 will get to sail with an instructor in boats designed for them! There’s no need to RSVP and the cost is FREE. 
The Junior Sail Program will meet in the yard behind the Waukegan Yacht Club at 199 North Harbor Place.  At Junior Sail, they teach water safety, self-confidence, leadership, teamwork, and respect for the environment.
The most amazing thing that happens in their classes is that kids realize they are in a vehicle they have complete control over. That typically doesn’t happen until they are 16 and driving a car.  The smiles and the confidence that come from being absolutely self-sufficient at something most of their parents cannot do are absolutely addicting to all those who volunteer for this program.
Interested? Head down to the Waukegan Harbor this Saturday and Give Sailing a Try!
