Team thanks supporters for new boats
The Bainbridge High School sailing team gathered at the Waterfront Community Center to thank individuals and organizations for a successful campaign to purchase eight new Flying Junior sailboats.
President of Friends of Bainbridge Island High School Sailing Craig Juckniess opened the festivities, which included presentations by Jay Kinney, chairman of the Board of Commissioners of Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District, John DeMeyer, team advisor and Park District Recreation Services Director, Head Coach Susan Kaseler, and team Co-Captain Connor Juckniess.
Following the speeches and cake, festivities moved out to the driveway, where Captain Bob Schoonmaker led the crowd in a traditional boat-naming ceremony.
Major contributors to the campaign Ethan Stahl, the Greason/Mulhern Family, the Challinor Family, the Bainbridge High School Sailing Team, and Louis Burzycki were honored with naming rights and selected a representative to christen the boats with sparkling water.
