BENEFITING: DANA WEST YOUTH SAILING
Dana West Yacht Club Junior Sailing has taught the life skill of sailing to over 550 young sailors since 1981. Our foundation, Dana West Youth Sailing, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit corporation, administers the program for us. Their instructors are US Sailing certified and they maintain a fleet of competitive CFJs, Lasers, RS Teras, and Naple Sabots sailboats. It reaches out to the community with the area's most affordable program and scholarships are available when the need arises.
As you know, Dana West Yacht Club's Junior Sailing Program is administered by Dana West Youth Sailing, Inc., a 501c3 Non Profit Corporation. Unfortunately, we have some very serious funding issues looming in the near future. In order to cover our ongoing costs, (Our two slips are $400 a month each), improve our program for our present juniors, (We need sails, tillers, repairs, etc), and prepare for the future juniors, (It would be nice to buy additional Teras at $3,400 each). Obviously, we need to raise money.
Our Mission Statement: Building Character and Confidence by Developing Capable Sailors.
