The Lauderdale Yacht Club Sailing Foundation is dedicated to favorably impacting the lives of young people, primarily between the ages of eight and eighteen using sailing as a vehicle to teach boating, weather, marine safety, sea conditions, maritime ‘rules of the road’, racing, tactics, first aid and improve spatial and mathematical skills. We feel strongly that sailing at this age builds character, self-reliance, independence, self-respect and leadership skills in addition to supporting the math and science areas of education. The Foundation also supports organizations in South Florida that provide sailing opportunities disabled and disadvantaged youths.
