Havre de Grace Youth Sailing Program expects to teach 120 children how to sail this summer

When the Havre de Grace Youth Sailing Program held its pilot class in 2016, instruction was provided to five students in four boats.

The program grew exponentially in 2017 and when it returns this year for its third summer, 100 to 120 children are expected to take part in the program through which they will learn to sail, according to Rick Wahl, president of the Youth Sailing Program.

“All I hear is accolades from parents and kids of how much it meant for them to be able to do something to change their lives,” Wahl told members of the Havre de Grace City Council during a meeting in March.

Registration for one of the six 2018 sessions is open at
