Youth Sailing: Speak Now, Or. . .

Just writing the word ‘comprehensive’ makes us a bit nervous. You see, every time we attempt to do a comprehensive overview in Latitude 38 on one subject or another, we invariably leave someone out.

Last month we put out an invitation to all youth sailing programs to let us know about their offerings, as we’ll be doing a big spread on the subject in our April issue, timed to coincide with the Strictly Sail Pacific boat show.

From special sailing programs for disadvantaged youth – such as the Pegasus Project, seen here – to yacht club programs aimed at teaching racing skills, there are boatloads of opportunities for local youth sailing.

So if you haven’t done so already, speak now or . . . don’t complain to us after the article hit the streets. The good news, by the way, is that there are a tremendous number of youth sailing opportunities right here in San Francisco Bay — some with little or no cost to young sailors.

We’d like to thank all those who’ve emailed us already. Others, please email a short write-up on your program plus a few medium-to-high resolution photos to us ASAP.
