Expand the Teaching Fleet
Our existing fleet of 10 teaching sailboats – the RS Zest – came about through corporate and private donations and small loans. Along with these instructional sailboats, we purchased one used safety/teaching boat and received an additional safety/teaching boat through a private donation.
Eventually, we hope to provide training on more advanced boats that could potentially lead to collegiate or Olympic sailing opportunities. Future plans include a sailing learning center at Lucky Peak with additional equipment storage, new safety boats, and several advanced sailboats for youth or adults that would like to take sailing to the next level.
To accommodate more students, purchasing additional boats and safety equipment are the next steps. Without these, sailing education and other community sailing programs simply won’t happen.
