These famous Roasts are held every Thursday in July and August. Volunteer "parent chefs" cook hot dogs, hamburgers and cheeseburgers provided at a nominal cost including beverage. The hot dogs and burgers are supplemented by dish to pass contributions from parents. The children love it! The Roast is followed by games organized by the Waterfront and Sailing staff. A marvelous time for all!
P.S. also a good time for parents to have some time off: dinner, a drink or just relax by the lake.
Help build the Youth Sailing Program by donating now to purchase new racing sails for our fleet of Opti's and 420's. Sails are a sailboat's engine, and the best shaped sail is the fasted engine. Our Youth Sailing Director, Sue Vandermeer has set a goal of raising $10,000 for really great sails for the IYC sailing team. Please support our youth as they grow to learn the self-reliance and independence that being alone in a sailboat teaches so well. Click here to donate.
This event is held on the last Junior Roast of the year with awards and certificates presented by the Commodore, Instructors, and Youth Sailing Directors to the children. In addition to Certificates of Completion, awards are made in numerous categories such as sportsmanship, improvement, leadership, team building and excellence. Lots of memories!
