The Young Professionals Group of Lincoln came out for a great clinic on Saturday, June 13, 2015. We were able to spend three hours on the water sailing Snipes and teaching beginning racing. For a write up and short video (complete with beautiful blue sky and cumulus clouds that we get in Nebraska!), see the blog post by Alyssa Amen here.

Thank you Alyssa! 

We will have another YPG Lincoln Snipe course in mid August, stay tuned!
