Community Sailing adds coastal cruiser to its fleet

The following was sent in by Block Island Community Sailing:
Block Island Community Sailing, Inc. (BICS), the Island’s educational, non-profit community sailing organization, has announced the acquisition of a Cape Dory 28 to its fleet of recreational and racing sailboats. This auxiliary sloop has a roomy cabin that sleeps five and has full cruising boat amenities like a head, and a full galley with a large icebox, sink, and a gimbled stove. This sturdy coastal cruiser, with its inboard diesel engine and self-tacking jib, is easy to sail and fits perfectly in the BICS adult sailing program, which offers sailing instruction in keel boats, including cruising, coastal navigation, and larger boat racing.
This boat is a perfect solution for those sailors who had to give up their boats because of the long private mooring waiting list, when they moved out to the island. BICS members can take their friends and families sailing, whenever our boats are available, for no extra fee above our low $250 annual membership fee. Lessons are available for those who would love to learn to sail but never got a chance to learn the basics. All sailing instruction is taught by U.S. Sailing Certified
