San Francisco Bay is a treasure. It is an outdoor park that is open to the public, yet access is limited. For far too many people, the closest they get to the water is driving across a bridge. Just seeing the Bay is not nearly as rewarding as being on the Bay, to sense its movement, to move with the wind, to be where no two days are ever the same.
The goal of our Youth Outreach program is to use sailing as a way to teach kids important life enhancement skills that will ensure his or her success. We use sailing to teach goal setting skills, communication and teamwork skills, self-reliance, and leadership. Our curriculum is progressive with each level building on skills developed from previous classes. This year we introduced a STEM sailing camp in hopes to get more kids excited about science, technology, engineering, and math. In addition to our youth programs we have added Adult and Family courses this season to get all ages on water sailing! We are working toward starting a rental program and are doing a pilot program that offers open sailing days to all graduates of our courses each month through October.
Alameda Community Sailing Center was founded to provide a major access point to the Bay, and to educate people to safely use boats so they can get out on the water. We are working to ensure that waterfront access is protected in Alameda and hope to encourage the community to become involved in active community.
The mission of the Alameda Community Sailing Center (ACSC) is to provide opportunities to participate in sailing and other environmentally friendly activities on San Francisco Bay through waterfront access and education. The Alameda Community Sailing Center is a registered 501(c)3 public benefit corporation.
