The Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island has awarded Friends of Bainbridge Island High School Sailing a grant for a sailboat.

This donation will help fund the replacement of eight Flying Junior sailboats used by the high school sailing team and in sailing classes offered by Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District.

The high school sailing team is not funded by the school district; participants and their families cover the costs. The goal is raise $45,000 this year so the new fleet arrives in time for the 2014 spring racing season.
