WE ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO PROUD!!!!
DON'T FORGET TO THANK YOUR PARENTS WHO ENABLE YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN THESE EVENTS!
BELIEVE ME, (PC KIM HANCOCK TALKING) - I KNOW, IT WASN'T ALWAYS EASY. I WAS ONE OF THOSE PARENTS FOR MANY YEARS -- I DO NOT REGRET ONE MINUTE OF THOSE SPECIAL EVENTS THAT WE ATTENDED!!! I CAN ASSURE YOU - NEITHER WILL YOU. GO TO AS MANY "OUTSIDE OF MAYRA" EVENTS AS POSSIBLE - IT REALLY ENRICHES YOU & YOUR FAMILY'S SAILING EXPERIENCES !
I PROMISE, IT'S TRUE!
In 2019, (as in 2018,) MAYRA sent 35 sailors to participate in the Jr. Olympics at Island Heights Yacht Club. This AWESOME event was great fun and MAYRA sailors did quite well overall. We sent coaches and coach boats to the event to assist our sailors - thanks to the support of our generous donors that make this possible.
GO MAYRA! We are so proud of all of you and your wonderful accomplishments!
This 2-day event included the following fleets: C420, RS FEVA, LASER RADIAL, LASER 4.7, OPTI W/R/B & SUNFISH. (THERE IS NO GREEN FLEET - THIS IS NOT A "BEGINNER'S" EVENT!)
***We are hoping that we have as many, or more, MAYRA sailors participate in 2020! ***
