Sailing right along

It doesn't get much better than this! Now in Week 6, we have had some pretty exceptional weather all summer long -- not to mention the exceptional summer we've been having at KBIA, where amazing experiences happen every day. Sailing races, swim meets, beach bonfires & movie nights, tween/teen night excursions, open sail/kayak weekends...we are having more fun than ever and we hope you will join us.  It's not too late to sign up for classes in August ...come visit the office and we can help you with schedules.  Let's really make this a summer to remember!
 
 
Remembering Reid
 
 
Sailors and spectators alike are invited to KBIA's eighth annual Reid Sacco Family Regatta on Saturday, August 12th. The day starts with a skipper meeting at 12:30 PM, followed by sailing at 1 PM. Interested participants should register in the office to reserve a KBIA boat or bring their own boat to launch between 285 and 292 Beach Avenue. Due to the shallow nature of the cove, even at high tide, sailors should use an Opti, Laser, Taz or Chickadee watercraft.
 
A $10 suggested donation per sailor will benefit the Reid Sacco Foundation. The regatta honors a longtime KBIA student and instructor who died of sarcoma at age 20 in 2005. For information on the Reid Sacco Foundation, visit www.cancerinyoungadults.org/about-the-alliance/.

Have you ever wanted to sail the clear blue waters in your very own boat with your family? We offer that! Set sail on our 19-foot boat with an instructor and a  family of up to four for a guided trip on weekends, when tides cooperate.  We can schedule your trip at your convenience, for the length of time of your choosing.
 
1.5 hours ...... $150
2 hours ......... $165
2.5 hours ...... $180
3 hours ......... $195
 
Please inquire at the office for a trip to remember!
 
 
 
 
Getting in and out safely at KBIA
 
Please help us keep KBIA safe for everyone! Our pick-up/drop-off zone is designed for a quick in-and-out, and it is imperative that drivers stay with their vehicles at all times. In case of emergency, this is the only way in for response vehicles. Kennebunk police have and will continue to ticket. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us move traffic along in that busy section!
