Nearly 40 years experience in sailing and maintaining sailboats from 10-44 feet and teaching my children and others to sail.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working with the physically and mentally challenged sailors at Piers Park. In addition I work with the staff to plan and carry out activities to serve the Adaptive Sailing Membership.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the enthusiasm, imagination, knowledge and determination of the members of the Adaptive Sailing committee.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

"disabled" to a degree and two of the committee members are quadriplegic and one is paraplegic. The paraplegic member is a Gold Medal Winner in Sailing at the Paralympic Games in Beijing, China.

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

develop and test more equipment to help more disabled people to participate in sailing. Hire professional staff to expand the adaptive programs. Custom rig 2 or three more sailboats. Build a new office to accommodate the disabled staff members.

Piers Park Sailing Center brought me up since I was just 10 years old. In the Fall of 2000 I started sailing with Piers Park. I was so impressed and happy with them that I decided to stay with them and do all of their spring, summer and fall sailing sessions. At the age of 15 I became a future leader, training to become a sailing instructor. Now as a cadet at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, I still teach sailing to the youth and underprivileged of the city. I am giving back to a place that gave me so much.

Expand their fleet of boats and offer much more to the community. We are small and serve as many people as we can. We just wish we could help more!

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.
