This season of frostbiting marked my first as the Director of Adult Programs at Courageous, which meant that running the series passed from Dave's hands into mine.  Over the past 5 years or so, Dave, along with the RC team and so many of you, have really reinvigorated this series, and the proof is in the numbers: for two years now all team spots have been filled and we've averaged 23 boats on the water, when not too long ago getting 16 boats on the water was a good day.   Big thanks to Jesse, Luke, Kip, Carl, and I (along with all our awesome volunteers and substitutes - Andy, Ian, Jack, Nate, Hugh, Rosemary, Steve) for working so hard to uphold Dave's legacy and the progress of the past few years.   Thanks to all for bearing with us through some of the rockier race management moments in this year's transition, and thank you all for showing up, racing your hearts out, and being part of this dynamic community of sailors.  I had a blast, and I hope you all did too!

This Saturday we hosted a Halloween-themed Open House at the JP boathouse for Summer Youth Program students, families, and staff.

It was a gorgeous day on the pond with bright sunshine, a strong breeze, and beautiful autumn colors. Many families joined us, decked out in the finest Halloween costumes, and sailed, rowed, painted pumpkins, ate too much candy, and celebrated the fall season with other Youth Program participants and staff.

Thank you to the JP boathouse staff, the excellent instructors who took us sailing, and to the families and young sailors who joined us!

From now until the Summer Youth Program officially begins in June, we will be hosting many events from career building skills for our Instructors in Training to family activities in communities around Boston to fundraising events to help us continue to offer great summer programming. Keep an eye out for our e-mails, Facebook and blog posts, Tweets advertising for more Open Houses and other Summer Youth Program events in the upcoming months.
