The Grosse Pointe Youth Nautical Education Foundation ’s mission is to promote national and international amateur sailing, maritime education and competition, and water safety.
The Foundation achieves this mission with outreach programs, training activities and provision of sailing equipment. We organize, promote and sponsor participation in regional, national and international regattas and training.
The Foundation provides partial funding for local high school sailing programs and individual sailors to accomplish greater levels of excellence on the national level up to Olympic Competition.
We support the general improvement of the lakes and environment in the Lake St. Clair area.
