Leadership Societies

US Sailing is in a singular position to drive change by redefining standards in skill development models and providing a breadth of sailing experiences to produce skilled, well-rounded and adaptable sailors.

Our congressional mandate provides the authority, but not the funding, to develop a complete continuum of learning and sailing experiences – from the entry ramp to the podium platform.

The generous philanthropists who comprise any of the three US Sailing Leadership Societies are celebrated in recognition displays located in the lobby US Sailing headquarters in Bristol, RI.
