Sailing Education Adventures of San Rafael operates a youth sailing program for the kids of Canal Alliance and the Canal District’s Bahia Vista Elementary School. (For those of you not familiar with it, the Canal is not just a waterway, but a multi-cultural, working-class neighborhood. Many residents could be termed ‘economically disadvantaged’.) To help raise funds to pay for the program, Whipper Snapper Restaurant on Fourth Street in San Rafael will donate part of their proceeds on Thursday, April 25, to the SEA program. Jose Neto, just back from Brazil after touring with Steve Winwood, will play guitar.

These young whipper-snappers are having a blast out on the water.

"We really want to get this group of kids on the water for summertime sailing," said SEA Youth Director Barbara McVeigh, "and they need our help to do it!" For more info, see
