Refresh Our Fleet

We have been in operations for 15 years and at this point some of our equipment is aging. We use Optimist sailboats to teach beginners to sail. Optimist sailboats (Optis) have an 8’ fiberglass hull which is easily damaged by continuous use and inexperienced sailors. Hence repairing Optis is an ongoing costly effort for our school. Thanks to technology, there are now rotomolded polyethylene Optis called SailCubes, are offered by McLaughlin, which are far more durable while still providing the beginning sailor the safe small boat experience needed.

Our goal before April 2019 is to raise funds to purchase Sailcubes to replace our aging Optis. We are asking for your help! Your $25 (or more) supports youth sailing! Donate $225 pr more towards our fleet refresh fundraiser and get your name or business name on one of our new boats!
