Questions about the Event
Who will the proceeds benefit?
Courageous Sailing teaches sailing and life skills free of charge to over 1,000 Greater Boston children each year. We use sailing instruction as a platform for learning and growth, with a focus on personal responsibility, communication, teamwork, problem solving, and stewardship. All funds raised through our ticket sales, silent auction, raffle and event sponsorships go directly to support our youth programming and provide scholarships for children who wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to learn to sail.
Why are funds needed?
While Courageous provided over 30,000 hours of programming to over 1,000 children in 2012, and will again in 2013, only one-third of students applying for our Summer Youth Program will be admitted into our program due to limited funding and capacity. Additional funding is needed to expand access and to maintain the high quality of our programming and fleet.
Who will be there?
Members, neighbors, volunteers, parents, young professionals, sailors from throughout the region and anyone who wants to have fun while supporting Courageous Sailing - you and your friends!
