Coronado's Junior Sailors and SEALs: Independence Day, Part One

While many youth sailing classes teach youngsters to sail, none offer a sense of independence like the Coronado Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program. Why? Besides their nationally acclaimed reputation and their journeys underneath the bridge to the ferry landing for pizza, the juniors learn to maneuver their vessels around SEALs, the super-human amphibious frogmen who secure our freedom. Both the SEALs and the juniors share a watery training ground in Glorietta Bay.

As the 4th of July approaches, I can't help but enjoy the way both the junior sailors and the SEALS practice independence on the bay, navigating their wind-swept freedom.

I'll be back next week with Independence Day, Part Two: a few photos of an island swathed in stars and stripes. Until then, celebrate!
