Are you still trying to figure out great activities for your son or daughter to participate in this summer? Why not register them for a week of Youth Sailing at the Davis Islands Yacht Club. For the past two years my son Sebastian has participated in this program and it was great, so much so that we registered for him to do it again. It was an excellent opportunity for him to learn the basics and just get more comfortable on the water. You can register and find out more at DIYC Youth Sailing. FYI, you do NOT need to be a member of DIYC to participate.
