The mission of the US Sailing Community Sailing Committee is to to promote and support community sailing in the United States. We recognize diversity as essential to achieving our mission; For us, diversity refers to the differences of culture, ethnicity, race, gender, age, beliefs, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, family status, physical ability, appearance and ideas. We are committed to achieving greater diversity throughout the sport and fostering an environment that is more inclusive.
To help us achieve our mission, we seek to identify organizations that provide the highest quality of education and support access to sailing for all. These are organizations that align with the standards set forth by US Sailing and offer safety, fun and learning through their programming.
Under the direction of the committee, US Sailing provides grants, accreditation and resources to support the growth of Community Sailing. If you are interested in being involved community sailing through one of our subcommittees, or if you have general questions, please contact John Pearce, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have a quarterly newsletter with updates from the Community Sailing Committee, US Sailing and other outlets. If you’re interested in receiving please sign up here. You can read our previous one’s below:
