Outdoors news: Free fishing days, sailors recognized

Making news

free fishing days in Salt or lakes ahead

The state is offering two upcoming "license-free" fishing days in both saltwater (Saturday) and freshwater (June 8). Also on June 8, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will host a free women's fishing clinic at Weedon Island in St. Petersburg. The first week of June is also National Fishing and Boating Week. Remember, you may not need a fishing license on those "free" days, but all bag limits, seasons and size restrictions apply. To learn more, go to myfwc.com/fishing.

Local collegiate sailors recognized

Two local sailors were honored last Friday for their contributions to collegiate sailing. The nation's top sailors have been in St. Petersburg for the past week for the sport's national championships, which featured women's, team and co-ed competitions. Seminole's Mary Hall, who will graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy in 2015, was a finalist for the women's college sailor of the year award. Abby Featherstone, a senior at the USF St. Petersburg, received an honorable mention as an All-American.

Sailing fundraiser

The Clearwater Community Sailing Center will host its Summer Luau and Fundraiser from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday at the facility (1001 Gulf Blvd.). The event will include tours, games for children, sailboat and outrigger canoe rides, a raffle and silent auction, including a seven-day, six-night charter in the British Virgin Islands. Proceeds will help support summer programs such as the center's award-winning Camp Awesome, which teaches sailing to high functioning children with special needs, such as autism and Downs' syndrome. Tickets are $10 for adults; kids 12 and under are free. For information or to donate a silent auction item, contact Kelly Dorn at (727) 517-7776 or email kelly@clearwater communitysailing.org.
