Sailors thank islanders for donations

The members of the North Kingstown Sailing Team would like to thank the following Jamestown community members for their generous donations to the Nautical Yard Sale: Betsy Gooding, Rick Lavoie, Conanicut Marine Services, Andrew and Julie Kallfelz, Tina McIntyre, Sheila Nixon, Gerry Bay, Brian Dutra and the many anonymous donors. We'd also like to thank our parents for their time and effort.

The sale was a big success, raising over $2,000 for the team. This money will be put toward new sails, equipment, or boat repairs for the upcoming season. Two thousand dollars could buy four brand new sets of sails that can be used next year.

To all who contributed, we hope to see you on the thank you list next year, too. Keep an eye out for unused items until then. Dylan Vogel and Casey Brown NKHS Sailing team
