Each year, SMBSF offers a limited
number of grants to individuals, sailing teams, and sailing programs
that demonstrate a need for extra funding.
Requests may be made for educational
expenses, regatta fees, and other costs of participating in sailing

to review your paperwork. It is important that those submitting requests
