In April, US Sailing announced a new community sailing program made possible by a major donation from the Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation.

The purpose of this ground-breaking Siebel Sailors Program is to increase diversity and opportunity in the sport of sailing by providing resources and support to youth sailors at public access sailing centers across the country.

Today, US Sailing announces the first round of primary and supporting Siebel Centers who will implement this innovative program. These designated centers at locations throughout the country will support an important US Sailing objective of providing increased access to sailing for youth, regardless of socioeconomic background, and will receive a fleet of sail boats, other necessary equipment, and expert coaching.

US Sailing has selected three regions to launch the Siebel Program - Treasure Island Sailing Center, DC Sail, Columbia Sailing School - and is actively selecting qualified community sailing centers to establish two more regions this winter. Networks will include three to four community sailing centers: one Primary Siebel Center and additional Supporting Centers. Center selection is determined based on several criteria, including an established infrastructure for learning, safe facilities, and equipment for youth, and a record of working with underserved youth populations.
