Please RSVP by June 01, 2015
You are invited to stay home, put your feet up, order out, watch you favorite movie, not get dressed up and teach a child to sail this summer.
Help the LYC Sailing Foundation give children a lifetime experience of learning to sail this summer. Let them experience the thrill of skippering their own boat. Share with them the gift of independence, self-reliance, self respect and a sense of accomplishment.
There will not be a speaker, any fancy presentation or gourmet dinner. Stay home, relax and relish the knowledge that you are helping a child’s future by giving the gift of learn-ing to sail and the lifetime of boating that will follow.
Many of the LYCSF Sailing Scholarships are awarded based on essay contests in local schools. The LYC Sailing Foundation also helps teach children to sail by sponsoring participants in the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Learn to Sail Program.
“Why I would like to learn to sail”
“Imagine me on a sail boat out in the cool, salty water of the ocean. Now that’s an amazing experience. I hope one day I will earn that opportunity.”
“I think learning to sail would be really fun. Sailing might also help me to focus and persevere. Sailing takes a lot of patience and it is very hard to maneuver the boat. I can’t wait till I learn to sail!”
“I have always wanted to sail a real boat. If I close my eyes and concentrate really hard, a picture paints in my mind of my chocolate brown hair flowing in the soft breeze as I stand tall on a beautiful sail boat painted mustard yellow, a deep red, and a sky blue. I really hope I get to sail one day.”
