We want to thank the mayor at Town Hall for recognizing the work we’ve put into opening up the community and others to boating and the open water.
Our “Community Waterside” Project has been successful at integrating over 40 families from under-privileged neighborhoods into the water-side culture and teaching them about the responsibilities and discipline of sailing.
This was accomplished through a four week state-funded course, in which members got sixty total hours practicing sailing. The course included an all-expense trip to Long Island and twenty hours of paid-lunch meetings where we taught boat safety and responsibility.
We were awarded at Town Hall on October 1st.
