Call for Volunteersposted on August 30, 2013
for the Around Islesboro Race on Saturday, September 7th
Like all things Bayside, VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED. If you would like to assist in providing support for this event, please consider lending a hand with the post-race-social. In the past, the Bayside community has proven to be extraordinary in providing a hearty pot-luck at the close of the day, and we hope that this will be the case again this year. In addition, we welcome anyone who would like to help organize the ‘feast’, as many hands are needed.
Food items can be dropped-off at 3:00, and festivities for the post-race are set to begin at approximately 4:00pm. Questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for your help – we look forward to seeing you there!

Fees are assessed to offset the cost of race management, trophies and food. All funds raised in this year’s event will be used to support the Northport Yacht Club sailing school. We operate a fleet of (8) O’Day Daysailors, (1) 420 class, (2) 23’ Sonar keel boats and (2) instructor’s powerboats. While we strive to make the program self sufficient, the cost of boat upkeep, labor, insurance and workman’s comp are considerable. In an effort to keep lessons affordable to area children we rely on several fund raising efforts in the course of a season.
This past season a record of 106 students participated in our program
Trophy’s will be awarded to first three class positions Donated prizes will be awarded to sponsored boats in order of overall finish.
