Become Involved!

We are an all-volunteer academy and always need volunteers who are willing to give some time and help expand our efforts to offer sailing classes to youth – no experience necessary (we need more than just teaching).  You can support our youth to ensure this is safe and fun for our kids:  man the chase boats, tow the boats, maintenance on boats, leadership training, provide snacks, even offer your ideas to make this opportunity more fulfilling and fun, etc. We can use your help whatever you offer!

Contact Chuck to become involved in this important mission, or better yet go ahead and sign up to volunteer here!
