The Pensacola Yacht Club gave SEASTARS 3 opportunities to take 6 swimmers sailing on “The Satori”. The purpose of The PYC Satori Foundation is to inspire interest in and encourage and promote the sport of sailing and yachting and a broad range of maritime activities. The foundation is established to develop educational and training programs for the sports of sailing and yachting, for seamanship and for marine education. The Foundation will receive, maintain, use and apply funds and assets exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary or educational purposes.
May 27th Coach Gracie, Susan, Bonnie, and Coach Robin got to take some of our special needs swimmers sailing. We took another group June 11th and our last sail of the year was August 20th.  What an amazing experience for our SEASTARS Swimmers!
On July 2nd Pensacola Yacht Club hosted the Junior Olympic Sailing Regatta for kids from around the country. It was a very exciting event for the entire boating community. They thought it would be a great opportunity for some of our kids to be a part of. Five (5) SEASTARS kids were apart of the opening ceremony (carried the torch) and then went out on a power boat for an hour or so to observe the race. A huge Thank You to The Pensacola Yacht Club for sharing this opportunity with us!
