This organization serves so many people in the community by giving them the opportunity to learn to sail. Youth, teens, and adults from all backgrounds and abilities are given an opportunity most could not afford on their own. It also teaches everyone the treasure that we have, the Boston Harbor and its importance to our everyday life. I highly recommend this organization to anyone that wants to learn a life long skill, and to someone who wants to meet great people. My wife, and my one year old son enjoy sailing. Our hope is for our son to learn this skill and gain the confidence he needs to succeed in life.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

serve more youth, expand its training facility, buy larger boats, and expand its reach and course offerrings to serve more members of the community.

Piers Park is one of the most beautiful waterfront parks I have ever traveled to, and the fact it is in the middle of an inner city urban area makes it even more remarkable. We learned about the program by one of their staff members who is a very inspiring woman who won a gold medal in sailing. Since she was a wheelchair user herself, it was very motivating for the disabled children at our facility. At the Piers Park site, our kids were able to get right on the dock and down to the water. They were having so much fun scooping up jellyfish and racing the crabs they didn't even realize how much they were learning! This place is great and we are very lucky to have such a resource in our city.

The most important part for our children with disabilities, because so many of the staff members themselves are living with physical and sensory disabilities. A truly unique organization.
