We are thrilled to say that the 2017–2018 Sailing is Sustainable Fleet Replacement Fundraiser at Willamette Sailing Club’s Annual Awards Banquet on December 2, 2017 was a great success. We exceeded our goal of $15,000 and raised $21,000 just that night. Thank you to all of our amazing donors!
Funds raised will allow OYSF to help youth sailing programs throughout Oregon replace their aging sailboat fleets and equipment. For example, Willamette Sailing Club will spend nearly $120,000 to replace their fleet of small sailing dinghies which support a number of educational sailing programs in the Portland area. These boats are utilized by over 700 youth every year, allowing kids from every background to take to the Willamette River and enjoy the rewards of our wonderful sport.
Our goal at Oregon Youth Sailing Foundation is simple: “Get more Oregon youth sailing!”.
It is this kind of support that will keep sailing sustainable and accessible.
