A Blizzard of Sails: DJST registration starts Feb. 25


SOUND’S GOOD — Brighter days are ahead for young sailors on the local waters and it starts with Darien Junior Sailing Team sign-ups this month.


The only whiteout on The Sound, already on many kids’ horizons, is the blizzard of sails to arrive in June with the start of the Darien Junior Sailing Team season.

Despite the wintry obvious outdoors the time for preparing to board the boats is nearly upon us, beginning with DJST registration 9 a.m. Feb. 25.

Registration takes place online at darienjuniorsailing.com for the community non-profit team.

It offers fun learn-to-sail programs for the novice, and goes all the way to advanced level junior sailing.

Instruction includes sailing on Optimist sailboats for sailors 8-14-years of age and Club 420s for high school age sailors.

All sessions are scheduled to start on Monday, June 24.

Refer to the website or brochures at the Town Hall for detailed information on schedules, levels, fees and forms.

The program is open to Darien residents.
