Sail America holding meeting on regional growth

The Sail America Education Committee is hosting a meeting Friday at Strictly Sail Chicago, which is aimed at creating regional grow-sailing action plans.

The meeting takes place at 9:30 a.m. in Room 313 at the Navy Pier.

John Arndt of Latitude 38 will host the event. He has recently hosted and participated in several West Coast regional sailing meetings for concerned members of the regional sailing community. The meetings have been attended by nearly 100 people who have gathered to brainstorm and take action.

Attendees at the Chicago meeting will learn how regional groups in Northern and Southern California are working together to help grow the sailing market.
