Boats for High School Sailing Team

$10,296 of $15,340 goal

Raised by 30 people in 29 months
We desperately need to replace the Coronado (CA) High School Sailing Team’s fleet of 10-15 year old FJ class sailboats #NadoSailing.  The sailing team receives no funding from the high school; parents cover the costs of coaching and regatta travel, but maintaining broken, leaking and sometimes sinking boats continues to be a challenge. Some practices, some sailors are left high and dry on land due to the poor condition of boats. 

We need more than $92,000 to replace the fleet of 12 boats. Two new boats have already been ordered at a cost of $15,330, but we have 10 more to go.  Your donation, no matter how large or small, will have a direct positive impact on the quality of #NadoSailing for many years to come.


Keeping teenagers focused on healthy activities is a key building block of future success in life. High school sailors are learning and using communication skills and leadership, while applying complex math, physics and geometry concepts to their sport. Sailors also become knowledgeable about weather, tides and the marine environment. These core skills form the basis of future careers in science, engineering, or management.

#NadoSailing has a great track record. CHSST graduate Paris Henken sailed for the United States at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, and Coronado sailor Cooper Dressler is currently a grinder on the 2017 America's Cup US syndicate Oracle Team USA. Graduating seniors have been accepted to Harvard, Brown, Stanford, Boston College, US Naval Academy, US Coast Guard Academy, USC, George Washington, Georgetown, Univ. of Hawaii, College of Charleston and many other colleges and universities to sail and study.

Please join #NadoSailing to fund boats to keep these amazing athletes, students and leaders of tomorrow on the water, now and for years to come.  Your generous contribution will make a big difference.

CHSST is a 501(c)(7) non-profit organization.

Wow!! #NadoSailing 's $10K milestone was surpassed today with a generous donation from the Bastuba family, which gets us 2/3 of the way to our goal. We still really need someone to step up an sponsor a boat and sails. Once the first donor does this and sets an example, others will follow. Thank you to everyone for your generous support! We will be distributing Team visors and Polos within the next few weeks. Please email us your shirt size preferences to sailCHSST@gmail.com. Thank you!
