Anchor’s Away Youth Sailing Annual Regatta & Barbecue
We are happy to announce we have once again partnered with Anchor’s Away Youth Sailing (AAYS) for their annual Regatta & Barbecue.
AAYS was launched almost 20 years ago by members KC Matlock and Susie Campbell and has been managed for the last several years by Midge Patrick. AAYS takes local youth, who are living in the Orange County foster care system, sailing on a monthly basis with volunteer skippers, crews and boats ensuring fun and safety for all participants. Every year AAYS holds a fun regatta and barbecue for the kids. This is where you come in … we need your help on the day of the regatta and barbecue!
We are looking for volunteers to:
+ Donate & Skipper Boats
+ Serve as First Mate or Crew Safety Monito
+ Friendly Dogs Welcome
+ Family/Friends of WSA-OC Members Welcome to Attend
+ Land Crew including:
– Donations of Desserts or Easy Appetizers (Chips/Dips/Veggies)
– Early Riser to Secure Picnic Space
– People to help with fun activities (tug-of-war, frisbee, 3-legged races, guitars, etc.)
The event will take place in Dana Point on Sunday, October 21st, but due to privacy, concerns, we are limiting specific time and location info to those who sign up in advance by contacting our Community Service Coordinator, Laure McCaleb.
Those of you who’ve participated in the past know this is a very rewarding event for the volunteers and an empowering one for the participants. Contact Laura to volunteer and to receive specific event information.
EVERYONE WHO ATTENDS THIS EVENT MUST SIGN UP IN ADVANCE..
There is no fee to participate and member guests are invited to join us.
