One of the "Takeaways" from the USSailing Leadership Forum was a question that asked:
"How can....organizations and other sailing industries integrate with their local communities to provide more awareness for prospective new sailors and waterfront access...?"
With this in mind, CBYRA has created a new page on this site devoted to getting new people on the water. We've listed six organizations that you can get in touch with if you are new to sailing or have never sailed and would really like to.
This list is by no means comprehensive and we strongly encourage you to send us the names of other organizations that could be a resource, even if it is just a waterfront park that allows kids to launch a dinghy!
Thanks, and we hope to hear from you.
