The SDYC J/22 Fleet in conjunction with the SD Port Tenants Association is hosting a Coast Guard Regatta on Saturday July 22. It is in our interest to expose these service members to activities on sailboats to enhance their understanding of how we operate and vice versa. Building relationships through this avenue is a novel way to engender respect for the presence of the Coast Guard and the relationship that everyone on the water has with one another.
We will need a few volunteers to come out and help drive the boats and show the officers the literal ropes and how they work. We will meet at 1pm, have snacks and a short meeting on shore to go over what we are doing, then sail for two hours and come back to the barn. Please contact Event Chair Dave Vieregg to volunteer to help the Club strengthen our bonds with our fellow watermen while having a great afternoon on the water.
