Through the guidance, direction, and support of Dan Gillispie, Corrie Radtke, Dixon Cole, and Lud Kimbrough, our budding sailors acquired the fundamental skill sets of sailing and bolstered a confidence for navigating through the waters. Our participants have gained a better understanding of how caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, the YMCAs core values, are interrelated in all of our actions.
I have forwarded a few pictures to Strother Scott in hopes that members will visit your website to see the positive impact this experience has had on our participants. Of special note, I would like to thank Fishing Bay member Dr. Ron David for providing scholarship opportunities for a few of our youth who otherwise would not have been able to participate.
I hope we can build on the success of this years program to further instill the passion of sailing in our area youth. Thanks again for the generosity and commitment of the Fishing Bay Yacht Club to the holistic development of our youth.
