    SAYC Sailing Center Receives “Youth Engagement” Grant From

    US Sailing Association’s REACH Program

    Grant Supports St. Augustine Yacht Club Sailing Center STEM Programming for Young Sailors

    St. Augustine, FL (July 12, 2021) -- The St. Augustine Yacht Club Sailing Center received a $3,500 grant from US Sailing’s STEM Education Initiative, REACH. The grant is designed to support STEM programming for young sailors on and off the water and provide a greater connection to the area’s natural resources within the year-round sailing programming at the St. Augustine Yacht Club Sailing Center. The REACH program will be offered to 6th, 7th and 8th graders as an afterschool program this fall.

    The purpose of this grant is to grow the REACH National Network through effective programming. Together we are working to actively “normalize” STEM education including environmental literacy and responsibility utilizing our vast network of potential highly skilled workers and ocean stewards. Support from Rolex and US Sailing donors has made these grants possible. 

    “We’re fortunate and grateful to add an emphasis on STEM for our young sailors here at SAYC,” said Marissa Burrier SAYC Sail Director. “This grant allows us to expand on our many on-water sailing program offerings, and will help kids understand the scope of our local Salt Run and ocean-side environment, and love the adventure associated with it.”

    The SAYC Foundation’s mission to promote water activities in the St. Augustine community is fulfilled by the SAYC Sailing Center’s year-round, on-the-water programs for local youth. From learn-to-sail summer camps to sail race teams, the SAYC Sailing Center teaches children safety, confidence and competition. The St. Augustine Yacht Club proudly offers Youth Sailing programs to members and non-members alike. Since 2012, SAYC has offered on-water instruction through multifaceted programing designed to accommodate all levels of experience and build skills and confidence both on and off the water.

    SAYC Sailing Center is equipped with many U.S. Sailing Certified Sailing Instructors. SAYC also offers development clinics during the summer, spring, and fall, as well as sailing education for adults.

    New Boats!

    Thanks to the generous gift from the SAYC Foundation’s ongoing Fund-a-Fleet campaign, our Youth Sailing program is the recipient of 6 lightly used Club 420’s.  These boats will be reserved for our 420 Sail Team.  As you can see from the photo, the boats are in great shape.  They come with new sails, including spinnakers, spinnaker poles, sail bags, rigging and lines, dollies, and dolly stands. They are being transported from southern California and will be here by the end of the month!
