Updates on the Sooke sailing camp, and the Sailing Co-op.

Sooke’s sailing camp saw 22 children between the ages of six to 14. The weather and winds have been cooperating nicely

Sooke’s sailing camp for kids has been well attended, with 22 children between the ages of six to 14. The weather and winds have been cooperating nicely, and by the second day the kids were sailing on their own.

“The Sailing Co op for Adults that want to learn or practice crewing or sailing is moving ahead,” reported Gord Fulcher. “We have enough members to make the first year happen and are starting orientation.  There were five sailboats on the Sooke Basin during the last Tuesday Night sail which is open to anyone if there is room. That is something we dreamed of four years ago and did not expect so soon.”
