Whirligig Festival

As has been the case for the past 21 (count ’em, 21) years, Shelburne has been host to the fantastic, local volunteer driven Whirligig and Weathervane festival. This year, with a theme of “Wind and Whimsy,” our own Sailing Academy will be on site with a booth and a boat or two from the Academy fleet. Visitors of all ages will be able to explore hands on and gain a better understanding of these ultimate wind machines.

C’mon down to see all of what the festival has to offer and stop by our area to say hello to the volunteers and young Academy sailors and coaches who will be on site. 


Our last email detailing “Operation 29er” identified categories of giving that will be a part of our fundraising plan. It was helpfully pointed out that our numbers included some overlap. So to be clear: 
GOLD MEDALISTS:      $1,000 and up
SILVER MEDALISTS:   $500 – 999. 
QUALIFIERS:                $50 – 99
COMPETITORS:           (up to) $49

Remember, it doesn’t matter what level of giving you choose. It only matters that you join us if you believe in what we’re trying to accomplish. 

Thanks again for your consideration. See you at the Festival!
