Racing, Outreach, Organization, and Training
The purpose of the Youth Sailing Initiative is to encourage and promote the growth of youth sailing, that we believe as an activity offers a unique medium for personal growth and enrichment.
Check out the latest newsletter. It includes a recap of recent activity, including the spring high school season, Safety at Sea, and our recent fundraising campaigns.
