BOOM start delayed a day

Young sailors, be advised: your ship will cast off one day late.
The Best-Ever Ontario Optimist Mobile (BOOM) program, originally set to run July 1-4 on Sand Bay, now will begin Wednesday (July 2) and last until Saturday (July 5).
The times for the sessions will remain from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. each day.
Eric Rude of the Rendezvous Yacht Club, which is hosting the sailing school in co-operation with the Town of Fort Frances, said the move was made to avoid any conflict with Canada Day activities planned in the area.
The Ontario Sailing Association established the BOOM program two decades ago to teach young boating enthusiasts on-board safety skills and general knowledge about watercraft.
The program is open to children ages six-16. Registration is $140 for the first child from each family, and $130 for any subsequent children from the same family.
