ANNUAL APPEAL 2020!
With the help of our always supportive museum community, we returned our popular Junior Sailing Program to its original Gallants Channel home for the 2019 summer season. And despite the Covid-19 pandemic we had a very successful, albeit scaled back, 2020 season.
Now, with a new pier and floating dock facility, and a new waterfront pavilion complete, our budding sailors are able to return to the relatively tranquil waters of Town Creek. Before the Highway 70 high rise bridge construction, the creek served our first-time sailors wonderfully, providing safe and enjoyable water for learning boat skills and self-reliance, and a special community to meet and make new friends.
With Town Creek calling us, coupled with the new pier, docks and pavilion, the need to move our JSP Classroom is paramount for 2021. The Boating Education Center – our future permanent classroom – has been delayed due, in part, to the pandemic. This situation makes the relocation of our current classroom even more timely and important, knowing the new and updated waterfront will serve us for the foreseeable future while the Boating Education Center project continues to develop through building design and a capital campaign.
We hope you will join us as we “Make The Move”
not only with the current classroom closer
to Town Creek, but also setting the stage and
laying the groundwork for the permanent home
for the Junior Sailing Program.
Your support of this program will ensure
the continued teaching of this enjoyable,
lifetime skill: SAILING!

Since the Junior Sailing Program began in 1993, our students and parents alike have praised the program for the amazing opportunity JSP provides and for the outstanding crew of staff and volunteers who guide these young sailors.
With close to 4,5000 alumni of the program, we look forward to many more years of teaching the basics of wind and water to the next generation!
