Camp Sweeney Class Sail (Aleta, Benjamin Walters)

Location: Berkeley Marina
Description: Given the large interest in Sweeney sails we plan to make most of them double sails with both Aleta and Benjamin Walters sailing, dividing the students and crew among the two boats if sufficient people sign up. The students will meet both boats at Dock O, but crew for Aleta should go to that boat to bring her over. First we meet at Berkeley Yacht Club for a half our of class at nine. Again, likely we will have both experienced and new students on this sail, some acting as mentors.
