Financial Assistance Available
A few years ago we set up a bursary fund to help financially disadvantaged children to participate in the summer kids program. This program will continue in 2024. We can subsidize a portion, but not all, of the fees in the belief that each student should contribute something towards this very exciting summer experience. For more information please contact our Learn to Sail director Paul Hahn.
