A Visit from Vero Beach Academy

Donathan Williams welcomes VBA students and parents

 

VBA is a learning cooperative which combines homeschooling with classroom instruction.  Last Friday YSF was happy to host their weekly enrichment day, offering the youngsters and their parents an introduction to sailing and an overview of our mission and programs.  

Learning about sailboats in the YSF outdoor classroom

The rainy day did not dampen spirits as the two-dozen plus visitors enjoyed a brief video in our classroom, a facility tour, and a chance to “sail” a 420 on land. 

 

Future skippers and crew

 

YSF Sailing Director Mary Morgan was a huge hit with the kids as she zipped back and forth in the lagoon on a Sunfish and demonstrated a capsize and recovery.
