Starting in Sailing March-14-2018

A student at Moody High School recently sent in this information and asked that we post the link to the article.  Please take a look and share it with all that you know that are interested in the sport of sailing.

 

Hi Rockport Yacht Club,
I go to Moody High School. As project for our mixed elective class this year, we were tasked to raise awareness on sailing and boating safety. Sailing sure is fun but it's not without risks. So it is our goal to increase people's knowledge and ensure that they have the tools to be safe.  Aside from participating in after-school activities, we are also asking sailing and boating clubs to help us boost online and social media awareness. 
A recent article I found that I think may be useful especially to beginners ishttps://www.dietspotlight.com/sailboating-safety-guide-beginning-boaters/  Can I ask you to share it on your site?
Thank you and keep up the good work!
