Remember this in Spring of 2017?
The 2017 spring season had a lot of activity on the waterfront at Kings Point. They are were rebuilding the docks and putting in 40 pylons but it is not all work. The waterfront team was training for Block Island Race week aboard USMMA Sailing Foundation boat, High Noon. Plus the KP dinghy team qualified for the College Nationals!

Sail Ahead: Healing Wounded Veterans through Sailing is a program supported by the USMMA Sailing Foundation. It was started by the Duclay brothers, Killian and Sean, to expose local veterans to the community of sailing. Their Sail Race Team is out of the gates training hard at Oakcliff and have been competing in a variety of regattas including Ida Lewis Long Distance, Vineyard Race, Vanderbilt Cup and more!

Looking back on 2017:
One of the most interesting parts of when a vessel is donated to the Foundation is meeting with the donor and reading through the paperwork aboard. In the case of CLOVERLEAF, a Krogen Trawler, it required far more than just command of the english language. Cruised extensively by well-known cruisers David and Beverly Faiges, she voyaged through the Bahamas, up and down the Eastern Seaboard and even the around the Mediterranean!

Who do we know out west?
Looking for a site to support a potential training camp in the West/Pacific Northwest in August. We require 5-7 J22s or Sonars, wheelchair accessible docks and classroom (preferably with AV capabilities). Must be conveniently located to a supportive hotel and to a decent size airport. Local support with meals is also a huge plus.
Email Cory@WarriorSailing.org if you have viable locations with points of contact.
Or, if you simply want to put your crazy ideas there, feel free to comment below!
