Wet Hens’ celebrate 55 Year Tradition
Members of the Wet Hens Sailing group sail around Hickam Harbor during the 55th anniversary reunion celebration on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, June 30, 2016. In 1961, the group was founded by Air Force wives that learned to sail from then harbormaster, Lou Foster. Early in their training, he referred to his students as a bunch of "wet hens," and the name stuck. After learning to sail, the women wanted to share their newfound skills with other women. So those first "Wet Hens" started a tradition that has lasted 55 years. (U.S. Air Force photo by Teach. Sgt. Aaron Oelrich/Realeased)
