The MDI High School Sailing Team has been practicing everyday after school and travelled each weekend to regattas in Marblehead Mass and Portland Maine. George Stevens Academy from Blue Hill has travelled to the Sailing Center each Wednesday to compete and both clubs are tuning up for the upcoming Downeast Regatta State Champion Ship in the upcoming week. Our team this year is young with only one senior sailor on the rooster. They have improved at each regatta and we are looking forward to the busy month of May. On Memorial Day Weekend we will be hosting the second Annual Great Harbor Regatta here in Southwest Harbor and have ten teams coming to the event including three teams from Vermont!
