Seven sailors spent their spring break on Orcas, completing an intense 40-hour course on sailing education, to become certified U.S. sailing instructors.
U.S. sailing instructor Ray Treppa traveled from San Diego to teach the 40-hour course, which included both classroom work at West Sound Community Hall and on the water training on West Sound.
"It is great to get these sailors certified as instructors, they are a key component to sailing programs around the northwest,” said Sail Orcas President Chris White.
