For over two decades I have had the joy of sharing my passion for sailing and education through Æolian Adventures, Inc., which provides experiential educational youth programs and research of northwest maritime history.
Many of you are aware that Aeolian Adventures, Inc. is an Educational Non-profit Corporation registered with the State of Washington, which has provided educational opportunities for thousands of students at no charge to them, as well as researching maritime history of the northwest.
You may not be aware that it is funded solely by donation, and by the taking of passengers on day sails; all proceeds go to fund programs. In the past I have been able to personally supplement funding shortfalls, yet due to a recent health issue I am currently unable to do so.
For the first time in the 23 years that I have been taking students sailing, I am compelled to make an appeal for your support; if you have a few extra shekels you can send to help keep Æolian Adventures, Inc. afloat, ‘twould be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your encouragement and financial support towards this goal, which represents three years of program funding for Æolian Adventures, Inc.
