Each year CGSCIC provides scholarship opportunities to many underprivileged young sailors who lack the means to afford and access our pristine and wondrous bay. That is a part of the basis of our Mission Statement. Not only for Summer, Spring & Fall Camps but on any given weekend Youth, 6-17 year old, sailors routinely participate in a wide range of programs that are run by US Sailing Certified Instructors. CGSIC has introduced over ten thousand children in the community to Biscayne Bay and the sport of sailing with CGSIC's well-known US Sailing sanctioned "Learn to Sail" programs. We provide a boat for each child and they are taught the importance of water safety, points of sail, sail trim, basic maneuvers, the right- of- way, nautical knots, how to rig and launch their boats, and most important to enjoy the fun of sailing.
