Niantic Bay Sailing Academy has closed out another banner year. As a direct result of generous donations, we were able to award 15 scholarships to children in the community and have taken initiatives that bring sustainability and concern for our environment to the forefront.
The Sailing Academy’s “green crew” partnered with the Mystic Aquarium to present programs about the dangers of plastics polluting our waters. The Larry White Junior Olympic Regatta was recognized for its sustainable and environmentally friendly practices, and social events at the club have taken a turn toward green as we eliminate single-use plastics and minimize waste.
As we plan for 2020, we have added two popular RS Fevas to our fleet and distributed a survey that will inform our future plans and purchases. In the meantime, we continue repairing and improving the current fleet, purchasing new sails and planning for future capital improvements.
