    We will be conducting a youth sailing camp in July.  Depending upon the number of students enrolled, the morning will be for students between ages 8 -12. The afternoon will be for teenagers.   A barbecue lunch will be included for students and volunteers.   We hope that students from the parent child class and other CLSA young people will invite their friends to join them for a fun day of sailing at our lake.

    Tuition for this class is $25 for each child to attend. Parents can sign their child up for either the morning or afternoon session.  The morning session starts at 9am and the afternoon session starts at 1pm.

    Protests

    A racer intending to file a protest must report their intention to the race committee before the warning signal of the subsequent race, or before the race committee leaves their station for shore if the incident occurred during the final race of the day.
