Join us at the Vermilion Boat Club for an evening of fun: April 13, 2019, 6PM.

PLEASE HELP! A couple years ago we completed our campaign to buy new JY 15 boats for the Junior Sailors, thanks to the support of many.  In 2018 we bought two new C420 sailboats, and a replacement 20 hp. Yamaha outboard for one of our coach boats.

Now, we need to make sure we have enough resources to maintian the boats we have in the junior sailing program.  Our coach inflatables are getting old, and we always need to build a fund for the next time we need to replenish the fleet.

We would be happy to be the beneficiary of your generosity. Feel free to either email us for more information, or contact us at our mailing address:
