Our High School 420 Sailing Team is doing a fundraiser to further develop its youth sailors. Currently, our kids practice with very old sails which really hinders their ability to improve their sailing skills. In addition, we are sometimes limited on the number of boats we can take to high school races around the state because we only have single-boat trailers, both of which are very old.

We need your support to buy 10 quality training sail sets and a trailer that can carry three boats. The approximate cost of this is $8,000. Our team and 420 sailor group is comprised of kids from multiple schools across the region. We charge minimal fees to in order to afford and promote sailing to these young men and women. We appreciate if you can support our efforts.

Encourage young people to enjoy the outdoors, build practical skills, respect nature and build confidence!  Our mission is to provide affordable access to sailing and over 13 years we have taught sailing to over 500 children. Graduates of our program have gone on to sail for universities such as University of South Florida, University of Michigan, University of Miami, Jacksonville University and Rollins College.  Many of our youth have become certified U.S. Sailing instructors and we have an active SAISA High School racing team. Your tax-deductible donation will help us as we continue our mission to introduce Central Florida’s youth to the lifelong sport of sailing.

Thank you in advance for your support!
