Will you be a partner too? We can’t do it without you.

Due to your fantastic support, in 2022 we were able to expand our program of fun, sun, sailing, STEAM education, and—most importantly—friends. We would like to offer much needed scholarships to the most impacted students in our community and provide needed services such as including breakfast & lunch, round trip transportation to Winter Island, and swimming lessons. Generous partners in the project have included Salem Public Schools, Salem YMCA and Salem Park and Rec Department.

You can help us offer an educational sailing program to empower all kids—regardless of economic status—to develop independence, self-confidence, and communication while encouraging teamwork, community spirit and FUN, through the sport of sailing. We are committed to giving them that opportunity. Help us ensure that no kid gets left on the dock.

Sail Salem, Inc is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
