Join us for our 50th Anniversary Bash, Saturday June 18. “Our intention is to celebrate 50 years of successes while looking forward to the bright future we have ahead of us. We will be welcoming back hundreds of alumni and long-time community supporters that have been instrumental in shaping who we are today; a nationally recognized sailing school serving over 1,000 students.” said Jess Haverstock, Staff Advisor to LMSS.
In addition to lively socials, LMSS will be hosting a fun yet competitive regatta. The 50th Anniversary Regatta will attract top sailors from across the country.
