Suffice to say that if you can tack this 14 foot boat by yourself you can sail anything. The instructors (volunteers) were correct. I suppose the wind gusts coming down from the passes in the Ko'olau mountains still huff and puff , but the waters where I learned the beauty of sail are now under the concrete of the reef runway at Honolulu International.

It's 2013 and I just now saw this sad story from 2008.
I grew up spending most weekends and holidays at ILYC. How sad to learn that it is gone now. So many great chilhood memories. I remember watching the place grow over the years with the work weekends where everyone chipped in to build and maintain things around the place.
And of course who could forget the annual chili cookoff!
