The US SAILING Center of Martin County is committed to broadening the base of the sport of sailing through dedicated and affordable community programs for youth and adults, and providing support for the development of future champions and Olympic racers.
The US Sailing Center Martin County is a 501c-3 charitable community sailing center whose mission is to grow the sport of sailing at all levels while nurturing a love for being on the water. Teaching All AGES to sail is what we do…changing lives is the heart of why we exist.
Every summer we have over 400 children attend our sailing camp. Annually more than 100 retirees complete our adult learn to sail program. Throughout the year at little to no cost we introduce sailing to children through numerous other local non-profits whose missions are to serve children. Throughout the school year we run a competitive high school sailing program that serves 5 local schools and more than 70 students. Since our facility and programs are recognized among the best in the world, we proudly host regional, national and international regattas for the highest levels of the sport.
Being true to our non-profit status, every year we operate at a financial deficit and then turn to the community for support to carry on another year. We will have been at this for 25 years. All our service fees are below operational costs, so it is thanks to many generous donors that we plan to continue to advance our mission another 25 years and more.
