Cocktails for Courageous: JP Edition
 
Help support our Jamaica Pond fleet on Wednesday, March 6, at the Galway House.  Our sails are old and have past the point of no return.  We have been using sail tape to patch up the holes but they are so big now that Site Director Mike can even put his whole head through them! In order to continue serving the community we need new sails for the 2013 season.  Please join us for our Cocktails for Courageous: JP Edition fundraiser @ the Galway on Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at 6pm. Click here to purchase your tickets in advance.
 
We'll be providing appetizers and some great raffle prizes, including an up-cycled tote bag from Hoist Away Bags. Save time, buy your raffle tickets now, and pick them up when you arrive: 5 for $10 or 15 for $20. Remember--all proceeds will go directly to supporting accessible & affordable sailing on Jamaica Pond by purchasing much-needed replacement sails for our five Daysailors.
 

Here is a breakdown of what we need and how much it will cost:

Sails: $4,700
Boom Crutches: $300
Sail Covers: $1250
Total: $6,250
 

About Courageous Sailing at Jamaica Pond

Courageous Sailing serves the community at Jamaica Pond by providing great sailing programs for kids, and affordable access to sailing and water-based activities for the whole community.  In our summer youth sailing program, kids started learn to sail through one-week session in July and August.  For many of them, their time at Jamaica Pond is just the the first step, preparing them for our more advanced sailing programs on Boston Harbor.   In addition to our summer programs, Jamaica Pond is the site of many of many of our important partnerships with community organizations, such as Boston Family BoatBuilding, Curley Afterschool Program, JP Manning Afterschool Program, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mass Bay and Franklin Park Coalition use our facilities and staff on a regular basis.  For example, Boston Public School students who build rowboats through Boston Family BoatBuilding have free access to rowboats on Jamaica Pond. Click here for more information.
