The Vineyard Haven Yacht Club will celebrate its 80th anniversary this Saturday with fun activities and races all day and a big party at night. The celebration will be a bit of a farewell party. Plans have been approved to tear the clubhouse down this winter and build a new and more functional one in its place.

Yesterday the East Coast Junior Windsurfing Championships began. Nevin Sayre, former World Champion, is running the event along with several other members of the United States Sailing Windsurfing Task Force.

The 23rd Annual Vineyard Haven Yacht Club Junior Regatta begins Monday and will continue through Wednesday.

Over 200 junior sailors will come from over 20 different sailing programs all over southern Massachusetts to compete in three different dinghy classes.
