Can you help chart a course for future community leaders through sailing? Your donation today will enable us to send our instructors to the most amazing sailing and coaching center in the world, Oakcliff in Oyster Bay, NY.
Our goal is to have our instructors learn from the best and then come back to share what they have learned to inspire not only future sailors but future instructors and leaders.
Green Bay Sail & Paddle (GBSP) doesn't just teach people about water sports. GBSP helps to build confidence, promotes communication, inspires empowerment, encourages decisiveness, delegation and teaches team building. These are all the skills necessary to become future leaders in our community.
This once in a lifetime opportunity at Oakcliff will also teach our instructors all aspects of the sailing industry. They will return equip to independently maintain our fleet which will save money by preserving our boats. They will learn about all the career opportunities that await them in the sailing industry. It is truly not all about just sailing boats. Plus our instructors will be bringing this knowledge back with them to share with our participants.
Please click the Donate button above to donate to our Campaign to not only help fund our instructors but also to enable them to bring their new wealth of knowledge back to our community.
We asked our Instructors, "What would it mean to you to have the opportunity to go to Oakclif?"
"This would help me to become a better instructor for GBSP and help me to become more confident in my work and my teaching."
