Inaugural RCSD Sailing Team Needs Warm Gear!

Tax deductible

From the beginning of March through late October, the surface of Lake Ontario is dotted with colored triangles - sailing teams from schools all over Monroe County racing across the lake. The City of Rochester is only 14 miles away, but the Rochester City School District has never had a sailing team  - until now.

Our inaugural RCSD sailing team is ready to set sail on March 18. Some of us have never sailed before, but we know how to work as a crew. Our sailors come from varied backgrounds and attend schools across the district and all of them are all excited to take on a new challenge.

The RCSD ranks #1 in child poverty among NYS school districts and sometimes we need the community’s help. Please consider donating to purchase dry suits and sailing gear for the team.   Dry suits average $500 a suit, not to mention boots, life jackets, and team pinnys. This gear will be re-used each year for all our sailors to keep them warm and dry during our Rochester spring. 

Funds will be collected by #58 School's 501(c)(3) but will be dispersed to buy gear for students from any school in the RCSD who sails with the team.

And the next time you are out by the lake – keep your eyes open for a glimpse of us sailing by!
