The Club Partner Program presents an opportunity for sailing clubs and organizations to partner with the US Olympic and Paralympic Sailing Program and its athletes. Introduced during the 2012 Olympic quadrennium, the Olympic Sailing Program’s yacht club partnership is a valuable opportunity for the leading clubs in the United States to directly support the national sailing teams. The Olympic Sailing Program seeks to partner with clubs that can contribute resources needed to help athletes perform and offers an exciting list of benefits for its partner clubs, which is detailed below.

Every Olympic and Paralympic story has the same opening chapter: the athlete learned to sail at a yacht club or sailing club somewhere in the world. That’s where every Olympic and Paralympic dream begins, and therefore, the Olympic Sailing Program wants to bring the leading clubs in the United States closer together for the final chapter of these athletes’ stories. The local clubs started aspiring Olympians and Paralympians down this path, and the athletes need the clubs’ support for the final steps of their journey.

Outlined below are the various levels of partnership. Please join us on our path toward Olympic and Paralympic Gold.
