Applications are due by January 31st via sailnaasa.org
With a number of applications already submitted, the Narragansett Bay Adult Athletic Sailing Association (NAASA) wants to remind sailors that the week is the last chance to apply for a scholarship boat for its 2022 season.
There are two boats for two crew each available in Newport, RI starting in June 2022. NAASA Scholarships provide fully funded F18 Catamarans for the NAASA F18 League including summer storage at Sail Newport, entry fees, and coaching. Full teams or individual athletes can apply via SailNAASA.org.
“Don’t have a crew or a skipper?” says NAASA President Chris Bulger. “That is okay. We are happy to match sailors within our applicant pool and within our own fleet. So do not be afraid to apply because accepted or not, reaching out is another way to make a connection with a new group of sailors.”
The goal of the scholarship program is to attract as many sailing athletes as possible by reducing the economic barriers and attracting diverse athletes.
The application and more information can be found at SailNAASA.org/apply.
The application period is open until January 31, 2022, with interviews in February and the final winners will be announced in March.
