Instructor Safety Boat

Want to join us in making a difference? We are raising money to purchase an Instructor Safety Boat. Any donation will help us reach our goal of $15,000. Our instructors are some of the best! They strive to deliver a safe, fun and educational sailing experience for all of our students. Having a reliable Instructor Safety Boat is an integral component to our students' safety and our instructors' ability to provide their students with the best learning experience possible. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this worthwhile cause that means so much to us.

We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit community organization that transforms children's and families lives through challenging and rewarding learning experiences, including school partnership programs, sailing classes for ages 4 through adult, paddle boarding and windsurfing classes, and STEM education. We also host racing classes. Our sailing school serves the greater Chain O'Lakes region. We also provide grants for financially challenged families.
