Junior Sailing Team - April Registration

As you know we've been trying to get our Spring Season up and running. COVID and staffing have proven challenging.  We were ready to begin our season when the 'circuit breaker' was announced.  Though sailing was not banned, we felt it was not the right message to send on the almost the same day as Dr Henry's announcement.
