The news the past few weeks has been tough on our youth sailors at the Club. Junior Bay Week has been cancelled for 2020 and at least the first half of the Travelers Series has been cancelled as well. But…
DO NOT DESPAIR!
We’re going to race right here at Buckeye Lake this year. As a part of the weekly Sunday Series, we are including a “Juniors Dinghy Fleet” open to all youth sailors under the age of 21 – Optimist, Laser, 420*, FJ* – race the dinghy you’re comfortable in or want to learn more about and you can compete for your very own “BLYC Junior Championship” Trophy (details to be determined). All boats will be handicapped using Portsmouth Yardstick calculations.
* guidelines are still being evaluated. It is possible that only singlehanded boats will be allowed
