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.
