F18 League Scholarship Program

Breaking down barriers to more athletes on the water

Consistent with our mission to grow high-performance sailing by attracting diverse athletes and removing economic barriers, we have a scholarship program that gives qualified teams fully funded F18's for the season.  In addition – we are looking for individual athletes looking to helm and crew on funded boats.  We are especially eager to attract women athletes.
