I just wanted to share some pictures of the Sail GHS Racing Team. They have been out practicing for the last week and a half for their upcoming scrimmage. A little wind, a little rain, a little cold, and some freezing waters can’t keep these sailors away. No wimps here – look at those smiles!
Go Sail GHS!

Gloucester Schooner Festival awarded four scholarships to Cape Ann organizations who foster greater knowledge and appreciation of Cape Ann’s coastal waters
On Tuesday, December 3rd at Maritime Gloucester, the Gloucester Schooner Festival awarded four scholarships to Cape Ann organizations who foster greater knowledge and appreciation of Cape Ann’s coastal waters by providing opportunities for young people to sail, row or otherwise become immersed in our ocean environment. The 2013 Gloucester Schooner Festival Awards were given to adults and student representatives from GHS Sailing, Cape Ann YMCA, the Gloucester Museum School and Sea Scout Ship 5. Checks for $1,000 were presented to each organization. The grants are made available through the generosity of the corporate sponsors of the Schooner Festival, as well as raffle and merchandise sales.

Heidi Wakeman Details The Again and Again 2010 Design Your Own Sailcloth Handbag Contest Video
Thanks For Watching
The contest which is free to enter and money raised through the auction of your cleverly designed sailbag goes directly to supporting the GHS Sailing program which gets Gloucester kids out on Gloucester harbor for no cost to them.
Frieda’s Again and Again shop makes bags from recycled sails. Instead of these sails clogging up landfills they are put to good use as gorgeous and functional bags made from this durable and water repellant material. You can learn more about the design your own sailbag contest in the video we made coming tomorrow
