Dillon Junior Sailing will be hosting a Pancake Breakfast at the Dillon Marina to benefit our Junior Program. For $5, between 8:30am-10am, we will be serving up Pancakes, sausages, and drinks before the airshow begins.
Starting this week, June 8th, we will be selling raffle tickets for a Sunrise Helicopter Flight for 2 aboard the Flight for Life helicopter. Tickets will be $10 and can be obtained from the Dillon Marina office, Pancake Breakfast, or after the airshow in the upper Marina parking lots at the Dillon Junior Sailing display! You do not have to be present to win. Flight is good for 2 people in the morning of their choosing aboard the Flight for Life helicopter based in Frisco.
All funds raised go to benefit the Dillon Junior Sailing Program to support new safety/dock improvements as well as new boat purchases.

Sailing season for the juniors is starting to wind down. This past weekend was the "Two & a Half Men/Women Regatta hosted by the DYC. This regatta combined junior sailors aboard DYC member racing boats for a fun day of racing. Take a look at the link for photos. There are still a couple weekends of racing at the DYC so if any juniors are interested head down to the marina on the weekends to see if you can hop on a boat.
During the off-season we will be making some changes such as consolidating our fleets and purchasing some new, easier to sail beginner boats, as well as Laser 4.7 rigging to continue to grow our Laser fleet. We hope to see even more kids through the program next summer. Thank you to everyone who made this summer a huge success. We had more kids through the program than ever and could not have done it without the help of the many volunteers and parent supporters. Contact James during the off-season with any questions or comments you had about the season or have about next season. See everyone next year!
We are trying to sell 2 sailboats for the end of the season. Boats can be available next week. Funds from the sale of the boats will go towards funding of new fleet of single-handed sailboats to allow more students in camp! We are selling 2 RS Feva sailboats. Click the picture for more information. Please contact James if you are interested.
Thanks to all who participated and helped with the Junior Olympic regatta. Results can be found here.
