Help Youth Sailing Foundation celebrate our 10th anniversary engaging and empowering the children of Indian River County!

  • Sailing develops self-confidence, accountability, decision-making, teamwork, STEM principles, environmental stewardship, and a host of other benefits attributing to well-rounded successful young lives.
  • YSF's programs are free of charge, eliminating financial and other demographic barriers and reaching a broad range of Indian River County children, regardless of background and means.
  • More than 150 students, ages 9 to 18, participate in YSF programs on a weekly basis.
  • Teen participation has doubled this year alone; a new JV program augments the well-established Vero Beach Varsity Sailing Team.
  • Demand for elementary and middle school programs far exceeds current resources.
  • YSF now offers special-needs sailing for children and adults.
  • YSF summer camps have expanded threefold, with 20% of 2018 participants receiving full or partial scholarships funded by YSF donors.
  • Cooperative efforts with environmental agencies engage young sailors in hands-on ecological projects.
  • YSF partners with Boys & Girls Club, Homeless Children's Foundation, Gifford Youth Achievement Center, Youth Guidance, The Arc, and Special Olympics Florida-Indian River County to reach underserved and special needs individuals.

Youth Sailing Foundation is funded almost entirely by individual donors, and our Rock The Boat gala is our #1 source of income. Won't you join us for the special evening?
