A Successful 2012 Junior Olympics hosted by NEHSS...
After weeks of anticipation sailors gathered at the Northeast Harbor Marina for the Junior Olympic Sailing Festival. The Sailing School was host to well over 100 sailors from over 15 different clubs. Many were from the Northeast Harbor Sailing School and as close as the MDI Community Sailing Center while others came from as far away as New Hampshire!
The event was a great success for the competitors and for the Sailing School. To see results, click on the link above.
