Since its creation, the Grosse Pointe Youth Nautical Education Foundation has remained dedicated to its mission: to promote sailing, education, competition and safety.
A review of the accomplishments of the 2017 and a look into the plans for 2018 reflect the Foundation’s consistent focus on those four key objectives and the initiatives to achieve them.
Based on results to date, the Foundation’s focus is meeting with success. The fact that participation in Varsity sailing programs is growing at area High Schools that receive Foundation support is one measure of success. Another is the area high school that hosted two significant Regional sailing competitions at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club, enabled by Foundation support.
Young student-sailors from the Detroit-area were able to enter major regattas because of a Foundation grant, developing world-class sailing skills and achieving success in those International events
And the ten young student — sailors who were scholarship recipients are success stories unto themselves — enthusiastic examples of the Foundation’s contribution to the growth and success of young student-sailors
