A Community to be Thankful for

In Thank You, Youth by Ashton Smith

Dear Courageous Supporter,

Thank you so much for your generous support of Courageous Sailing.

Thanks to your help we can continue doing what we love and impart our love for sailing and the water onto the kids we teach. This is my first year instructing at Courageous, and I can honestly say the difference between here and other yacht clubs I’ve taught at over the past four summers is phenomenal. While working at other organizations, I often had to work with families who I felt were taking their opportunity for granted and that they were there because they had to be and not because they wanted to be. Whereas here, Courageous’ mission of making sailing accessible to all of the surrounding community, a community that might not have access otherwise, breeds a genuine enthusiasm for the sport and for the Courageous community. It is unlike any community I have ever been apart of. Everyone who works here, sails here, or sends their kids her, bring that same enthusiasm and I am thankful to be a part of it.

-Zach
