Youth and Adult Sailing Lessons on Hobie Waves at SHBCC

The lessons were a huge success. The adult lessons sold out in 48 hours which demonstrates a huge demand for this type of program. Social members and novice members got to participate as well as children of members and children who typically attend AHYC junior sailing. This pilot program will be expanded on in upcoming years.

An extra special thank you to Scott Rathburn, Emily Rathburn, Bill Raska, and Vic Simon for going above and beyond getting the boats going and making sure the program was a success!
