The Santa Monica Bay Sailing Foundation was established in 1990 to provide support for youth and adult sailing and watersport programs. The Foundation also offers funding for sailing and watersports programs for at-risk youth, providing opportunities for young people who might otherwise be unable to enjoy these activities. We also provide safe-boating support to adult programs and events.
Foundation grants provide the equipment and instructors needed to promote, teach, and encourage safe and skilled boating in the recreational and competitive environments. Many of the finest young sailors who call the Santa Monica Bay home have received support from the Foundation.
Thanks to generous donors, affiliated yacht clubs and organizations, and our hard-working volunteers, Foundation-supported programs instill self-confidence, independence and maturity in young people who might otherwise not have the opportunity to participate in character-building watersport activities.
