The event has been well attended in the past and raised enough funds to purchase two 29er dinghies, a 10-boat Opti trailer and a used Zodiac RIB this past year. As all boat owners are well aware there is always something else demanding attention and funds. This year we are upgrading our coaches boat equipment and learn to sail facilities.

Bring your family and friends to help support Youth Sailing in Bellingham!
