CA - Orange Coast College In Newport Beach Celebrates Sailing

July 19, 2012 by John A

How did it go at Orange Coast College? Mette Segerblom, Sailing Program Coorinator, wrote in to give us a quick glimpse of the OCC waterfront: 'It was an absolutely perfect day on the water – sunny, warm and 7+ knots of breeze. We had a terrific mix of volunteers and staff taking about 100 people sailing on our Lido 14 dinghies, Shields, Harbor 20s and of course Betty (Catalina 42). Participants ranged in age from 15 month to 77 and well over 100 people all together. It was smiles all around. Several families joined us and one little boy just didn’t feel like sailing the Lido until he found a new friend in the crowd and the two of them went together with one of our junior instructors and had a great time.'

'Thank you for having had such a great idea how ever many years ago. It was a lot of fun to open up our facility to a free day of sailing and hot dogs of course. We look forward to participating again next year.'
