One of the last, but not least, elements of our mission statement is:
“Promote sailing instruction with an emphasis on youth sailing and safety”
Southern Idaho Sailing Outreach, in partnership with Boise Parks and Recreation, share the ultimate goal of offering small boat sailing classes to the residents of southern Idaho. All of our preceding mission elements – dock improvements and sailboat acquisition – are necessary to make this happen. We are working with US Sailing to certify sailing instructors, and an ongoing capital fundraising campaign is underway to secure funding for instructional sailboats and safety boats. Plans are underway to start sailing camps in the summer of 2019 at Spring Shores Marina, Lucky Peak State Park. See our sponsorship opportunities page for more information on how you can help support this initiative, and read our press release.
