Girl Scout hits the High Seas for National Sailing Competition
Molly, from Girl Scout Troop 141, took the Girl Scout sailing camp that Venice Youth Boating Association hosted when she was 9 years old. She took a couple weeks of their sailing camps that summer, and the following year she started the year round racing program. Molly is now a senior at Pine View, is the Captain of the Sailing Club this year, has been teaching sailing to other youth at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron this summer (she's a certified instructor), and Molly hopes to continue her competitive sailing through college as she pursues pre-med studies. Molly competes in the Laser Nationals this weekend with both boys and girls in Brant Beach, NJ.
