Proud parent moment… Tessa wins Grand Bahama Sailing Club Award!

Tessa hiking

So you need to bear with me know for a second while I brag about my kid… Tessa has been taking part in a sailing camp at the Grand Bahama Sailing Club for the past few weeks, and at the end of camp it was announced that she won 3rd place overall in the advanced division of the sailing regetta!

But that’s not it – she also won the Sir Jack Heyward Award for the best all-around sailor/sportsman for the entire camp.  It is a really big deal here, and the Commendant came and awarded her with the trophy which is a beautiful carved wooden sailboat.  Today she got interviewed by the Freeport newspaper, and she was asked to return and be a Jr. councelor.  I have added a couple of pics of her sailing and one of her getting her award.
