Sail Training Opportunity Announcement:

Cape Ann’s Youth are Invited to Apply

In celebration of the 25th Mayor’s Cup Race, the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce and Sail Gloucester are offering spots for youth aged 13 to 21 aboard participating schooners. Sail training spots are available on a
first come, first serve basis in response to this invitation. In 2009, SailGloucester, an initiative organized from the City of Gloucester’s Mayors Office, is supporting the 25th Annual Gloucester Schooner festival, organized by the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, in a joint mission with local sailing and maritime organizations to ensure the sail training spots are available to Gloucester and Cape Ann youth. Volunteers from SailGloucester will be coordinating the Youth Sail Training program as well as being visible with information desks or kits at information distribution points during the 25th Annual Gloucester Schooner Festival.  With limited spaces available aboard the vessels, and as time is of the essence, please ensure that this invitation and information is circulated to your organization’s leadership for sail training programs in order that your eligible young people are invited to your membership with a request that all interested youth reply to this email as soon as possible, and no later than September 1, 2009.
