The Brendan Sailing Program has been generously awarded $25,000 in new grant funding from two local Annapolis area organizations: The Kathryn and Jerry Wood Foundation and The Brick Companies Foundation.

The grants will allow the Brendan Sailing Program to continue its mission to build pathways for self-confidence and personal growth in children with learning differences through individually tailored experiential instruction in sailing. Brendan Sailing will use the funds to award additional scholarships for Brendan Sailing Program’s three base-programs in Annapolis, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and Washington DC. “We are thrilled to have received these awards from foundations who see value in our efforts to build self-confidence and teach life skills to youth with learning differences through sailing.  We pride ourselves on never turning away a student for financial reasons.  Thanks to the generosity of these two supporters we can provide scholarships this season for youth throughout the region” said Executive Director Charlie Arms.

Registration is now open for Brendan Sailing programs. The after-school program hosted at DC Sail will run on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 4:00pm-6:00pm starting on April 23 and ending on June 6.  The Annapolis Day Camp sessions take place at Annapolis Sailing School on June 17-28 and July 1-12. Fun camp activities include: sailing, beach exploration, swimming, friendships, watershed & US Sailing’s STEM program are all part of the Annapolis camp that runs Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:00pm.

The program at St. Mary’s College of Maryland offers both Day and Overnight Camps July 17-26. Overnight students sleep in the residence halls on campus, take meals in the student dining center, and learn to sail at the James P. Muldoon River Center on the banks of the St. Mary’s River. In addition to sailing, campers [DC3] experience other water activities such as swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and canoeing. Through Brendan Sailing’s partnership with Spirit of America, students also have the option to learn power boating and obtain their Maryland Safe Boating Certificate.
