THANK YOU!!! To all our Sail Share Members who helped Advantage Boating kick off the Sail Share Sailing Season last week.

Saturday morning we brushed out the winter cobwebs with our On-The-Water Basic Refresher Social. Three boats, 3 instructors and 12 Sail Share Members from NSC & BYC all learning and having fun together out on the water! Winds were light, but it felt great to all be out on the water again.

Wednesday eveining 20 of us gathered around the BYC Sail Share boats to socialize, relax and enjoy Ron's BBQ'd burgers and Doris' summer salads. The question of the evening was how many people can you fit in a Tanzer 22 at the dock? See you at NSC for the next Sail Share social.
