Eugene Yacht Club has a long tradition of teaching young people to sail. From a week-long Sail School (now in its fifth decade), to weekly supervised sailing during the summer, to supporting Sea Scouts and collegiate sailing teams. EYC is dedicated to encouraging young people to learn to sail.
Now EYC has partnered with Oregon Youth Sailing Foundation which allows members and friends of EYC to make tax-deductible donations to OYSF that come back dollar for dollar to Eugene Yacht Club to support our youth sailing programs.
Our first goal is the improvement of the Zuma dock, or youth dock. It has already been built, but it still needs to be paid for. Please consider making a contribution towards this project by going to the OYSF website. Click on Donate and be sure to add a message to OYSF indicating your gift is for Eugene Yacht Club.
Other projects on the horizon include replacing our aging Zuma fleet, create youth scholarships, support a youth sailing team, and hire additional staff for youth sailing programs.
