With help from Columbia Yacht Club Sailing School, this group of high school sailors is learning the skills needed to take increased responsibility for their equipment.
At first, the program was mandatory; if you damage a boat, you must do community service. Then, as time passed, the same group of seven kids started volunteering to fix the boats. These Blockheads choose to show up, slip into a Tyvek Suit, pull on a respirator mask, and get the power tools humming. And they love it. There’s no turning back.
