Keelboat sailing provides a critical generational link between young sailors and our seasoned veterans of the sailing community. Whether racing or offshore cruising, this a great opportunity for young sailors to solidify their knowledge & skills gained in small boats, as well as develop communication and team work skills with sailors of different ages and backgrounds.
We have been fortunate to have members from PBSC Youth Sailing Team invited to sail in local keelboat regattas. It has been an extremely positive experience. Obtaining a keelboat for dedicated youth training/racing will be a priority.
