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.
Life Jackets/Vests:
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.
Towel:
You will more than likely get wet at some point or another during the day – you should have something to dry off with.
Swimming Suit:
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!
