As to youth sailors, particularly those never exposed to boating and the Lake, the benefits include developing independence and self-confidence, as well as communication and teamwork skills. It takes time and effort, all focused on a productive activity, and opens aspects of the world and our community that can expand their horizons.

Over the last decade, structured STEM and Environmental Education programs have become embedded in these programs across the country. Our delivery of those US Sailing curricula will be coordinated through a collaboration already established with Tulane, Loyola and the Lake Pontchartrain basin Foundation.
