Jenny Avellar Junior Sailing Dedication Award Kathy Nora
The summer of 2015 marked a very successful school season for Namequoit Sailing as measured by the number of children who attended one or more sessions, the program and instructional evaluations that these students completed and, most importantly, by the smiles on their faces and the happy banter on dock and boats. Thank you for letting your child participate.
