Set sail on a sea of self-empowerment as a participant in our Sailing for Success program!
The Sailing for Success (SFS) program opens up the world of sailing to those individuals that may otherwise never experience it.
Our sailboats are specially designed to be fully accessible and safe and can be modified to accommodate virtually any form of physical challenge.
With YEA and the SFS program, you get connected to the environment and each other, people of all abilities are empowered to effect change in their lives and the environment, and whether you are young or young at heart, YEA will educate you! We have something for everyone, no matter the age or ability.
Each year the Sailing For Success program provides over 100 people with disabilities the opportunity to learn how to sail. Through a partnership with Broward College and the support from Allstate Resource Management, the program is able to provide Access Dinghies, which allow people with disabilities to experience the freedom of sailing. Throughout the year sailing regattas are held for participants to test their new sailing skills.
Learn-to-sail classes are offered monthly at the Broward College Tigertail Lake Center. Click here for a flyer
