The Fall season of Brendan Sailing's After School Program ended with fantastic weather, noted by our enthusiastic sailors at DC Sail.
Ten students from the Columbia High Educational Campus and two teachers shared the afternoon of sailing and celebration. After at pizza party the students sailed on the Anacostia River as the sun faded over the horizon. Many shared their favorite part of the program and all said they were eager to return in the Spring. We hope they do join us again!
