Laser Picos from Pete Townshend

Pete Townshend, the guitarist from the rock band The Who, has donated six new Laser Pico sailboats to the National Sailing Academy (NSA) at the Antigua Yacht Club.  the NSA is set up to teach young children in Antigua to swim and sail.  the Laser Pico is an entry-level sailboat built by Laser Performance, the same manufacturer that builds the Laser and Sunfish.

junior sailing program

I just found out about this: Portage Yacht Club is offering a learn-to-sail day camp for juniors at Portage Lake, near Pinckney, Michigan.  the club is offering “beginner” and “intermediate” sessions, both to be sailed in a Laser Pico, built by Laser Performance (maker of both the Sunfish and Laser).

The Laser Pico is a fun, durable, confidence-inspiring, rotomolded boat that can be sailed by everyone. It’s ideal for entry-level sailors and is equipped with a removable jib and reefing main sail for easy rigging.

discounts are available if you bring your own boat, if it’s appropriate for the class.  classes run Monday through Friday, 1:00pm to 5:30pm, on various weeks throughout the summer – but the last beginner level week is going on right now, and the last intermediate week is next week (July 18-22).  the courses are based on US Sailing course materials, and will be taught by a certified instructor.

see the Portage Yacht Club site for more details, prices, etc. (and sorry for the late notice!).
