The Daniel Waldon Fund

In loving memory of Daniel Waldon

Daniel Waldon was an avid sailor and fisherman who had a lifelong love of the water, from the lakes and rivers of his native Wisconsin to the Charles River and Boston Harbor. Nothing made him light up more than being on a boat. Dan was passionate about sharing his love of the water with others—he participated in the Courageous Corporate Challenge Regatta and encouraged his colleagues to sail with him. He was especially enthusiastic about and proud of Courageous’ efforts in teaching kids how to sail. This fund is established in his memory and in the spirit of his lifelong love of sailing. Thank you for contributing to the Daniel Waldon Memorial Fund.

Please write a check payable to Courageous Sailing Center for Youth and indicate in the memo line that it should be submitted to the Daniel Waldon Memorial Fund. Checks can be mailed to: Courageous Sailing, One First Ave. Charlestown, MA 02129 or delivered by hand to the boathouse on Pier 4 in the Charlestown Navy Yard.

 

Boat Donations

Your tax-deductible boat and/or equipment contribution will help support our Youth Programs, fleet improvements and other capital needs. For Equipment or Boat Donations, contact Dan Keenan for more info.
 
 

Volunteer

Another way to support Courageous is by donating your time and energy! Every year we have two major volunteer days: pre-season, on a weekend in mid-late April, and post-season, on a weekend in early November. If you'd like to get added to our volunteer mailing list, contact dave@courageoussailing.org.
 
If you have special talents or are looking to volunteer more regularly, we can always use help on the dock catching boats evenings and weekends during the season. Contact dave@courageoussailing.org and she can put you in touch with our Maintenance team or our Sailing staff to coordinate your time.
 
Thanks for your support!
