May 28 – Junior Sail to Clean Up Harborfront before Scoop Regatta

Join us Saturday morning, May 28, to help the Anchorage Yacht Club, Waukegan Yacht Club and Waukegan Sail and Power Squadron clean up the Waukegan Harbor front. This service project takes place before the Scoop the Lake Regatta and Dingy Poker Run, an annual event that this year is raising money for WYCYF Junior Sail. Yay!
And, our advanced sailors are invited to participate in the regatta as crew members! Organizers will match you up with boats needing crew. No big-boat experience is necessary.
The clean up starts at 10:30 and will last about 1.5 hours. Gloves and garbage bags will be provided. Please meet at the Waukegan Harbor office, located south of the Waukegan Yacht Club, about 10:15 am. Bring something to drink and wear your Junior Sail shirts. Parents, please stay and help out!

The regatta runs from 12:30 to about 2 pm.

Please let us know if you can attend this event and if you’d like to crew. RSVP to We’re happy to sign school service forms for students.
