Parents & Junior Sailors, here’s what you need to remember to bring to class on Monday.
Junior Sailors and Parents, we’re right on the edge of starting the 2017 Junior Sail Season! I can’t wait to meet you and your children as we make our way through the summer.
The staff and I wanted to take this opportunity to send out a quick reminder of the things students should bring to class during our time together this year.
WYCYF Junior Sail provides life jackets for use, but many of you might prefer getting your own. Life Jackets must be US Coast Guard-approved Type II or Type III(recommended) personal floatation devices. Life Jackets are required to be worn at all times when on the dock, in a boat, and any place in between.
Drinking water/Refillable water bottle:
Please bring your own – We have committed to not using disposable bottles to help keep them out of our lake.
Sunscreen / Sunblock / Rash guards / Under Armor / Performance long-sleeve shirts and or leggings:
Protect yourself and your skin from the sun – you can still burn even when the sky is overcast.
You will more than likely get wet at some point or another during the day – you should have something to dry off with.
Swim/water comfort test on the 1st day and Swim suits are very comfortable to sail in all season.
Dry Change of Clothes:
The ride home after class is a lot more pleasant in dry clothes.
Closed-toe & rubber sole shoes:
I can’t stress this enough – NO FLIP-FLOPS –
Good traction makes sailing easier. Plus, feet are crucial to what we do…You’ll want to keep them protected!
Windbreaker/Foul weather gear:
We sail rain or shine, hot or cool weather – please have clothing options that will protect you for potential weather conditions.
Sunglasses with retainer strap: (Croakies…etc)
Protect your eyes and protect your sunglasses.
— Full Day Students —
Don’t forget to bring your lunch and/or a snack or money to buy lunch and/or snack – Instructors will chaperone students to Dock Side for Lunch or Ice Cream..
Any questions? Contact me directly and I will be happy to explain.
We’re looking forward to a great season with you!
