for Halfax Youth Sailing Inc
Halifax Youth Sailing, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is dedicated to teaching sailing to young individuals in Volusia and Flagler counties and we need your help! 

Since 2008 we have taught more than 900 young individuals how to sail.

Nothing builds confidence and character in a child like learning to captain their own boat!

Our fleet is getting worn out and we'd like to add some new boats.  We'd like to purchase five O’PEN BIC sailboats, which would provide some of our younger and smaller sailors more opportunities for learning.

Watch this video to see a little more of what we do.

Learning to sail is not only fun, it gives an individual skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. We are passionate about sailing and enjoying the natural resources of our area and take pride in helping to create sailors of the future.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about Halifax Youth Sailing . We also invite you to come down to the sailing center, 15 Fremont Ct. in Daytona Beach and see what we are all about. We practice most Saturdays during the school year and have a full summer of SailCamp every year.

A big thank you to Lonnie and Maryann Myler, of Jacksonville, for a $500 offline donation! We are so lucky to have such wonderful and generous individuals supporting HYS!
With their donation we have now raised the funds for one boat and are on our way towards the next.

Thanks to all that have donated. We are one twelfth of the way to our goal. We have already stared planing for new boats and hope to be able to plan for more. Our fleet is aging and still serving the youth sailors of Volusia ,Flagler and Seminole County's. Please encourage your friends and family to support us with what ever they can. Even a small donation moves us closer to our goal. Summer is fast approaching and our fleet will need some new blood and some fixing up but we will be there to teach the joy of sailing to the kids in our area. Thanks again for all that have helped
