Butterfly Nationals Update

Terrific sailors, terrific team support!

Two weeks ago, TLYCC sailors packed up their gear, loaded into cars and headed for Glenn Lake and the Butterfly Nationals. Along with them, they took ten butterflies, Sail Instructor Casey Christensen and his hardworking sailing guru Pete Comfort.

And as in space flight, they were accompanied by a great ground crew of high energy and totally committed adults.

Our group sailed very well. Let’s give a cheer to all our sailors and their shore crew:
