Our Mission

The Foundation is dedicated to:

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.
