We’ve had a great 12 months helping kids develop life skills through sailing. We’ve conducted two sold out/waiting list summer lake sailing sessions through Parks & Rec. We’ve run land based sessions for many kids (and some adults) in Jackson Hole. And we’ve had an orientation session that featured local sailing legend Travis Rice (also a master at snowboarding). The Jackson Hole Ocean Sailing Team raced to Hawaii last July and has done a series of other ocean races including the super fun Newport to Ensenada Mexico Race. Learning sailing skills is a big part of the program but teaching kids about leadership, teamwork, competitiveness and STEM is just as important. Quite a few parents and local adult sailors have also participated.
We need your help to offer more kids these unique learning adventures, and if you donate through Old Bill’s Fun Run in the next 15 days, Old Bill will match part of your donation! Click: oldbills.org
