Twelve WBYC junior sailors participated in the Junior Olympics at the Rochester Yacht Club August 1-3. The Junior Olympics are the highlight of the local sailing season for juniors because of the large number of boats and all of the onshore festivities. Although the winds this year were relatively light, everyone enjoyed a day of top notch coaching and 2 days of good sailing on Lake Ontario.
