What we do:
Sail Martha's Vineyard is dedicated to protecting and perpetuating our Island’s maritime heritage. Our summer sailing and windsurfing camps introduce hundreds of children to sailing every year. At the Martha's Vineyard Regional High School, Sail MV teaches maritime studies and sponsors, equips, and coaches the varsity sailing team. Our core programs focus on island youth, but summer kids also attend the camp, and adults can get out on the water year-round as part of our rowing club. SailMobility MV is the island’s only adaptive sailing program, free for our disabled community members. Sail MV's City to the Sea program brings small groups of children to the Vineyard from inner-city Boston and New York for a week of activity on the water. These ongoing efforts make our seas more accessible to those who are not fortunate enough to be able to get afloat under their own steam.
Where and When:
The summer camp is eight weeks long, from late June to mid-August. Our sailing programs are based at the Sailing Camp Park, 177 Barnes Road, Oak Bluffs. The rowing club sets out from Vineyard Haven harbor, and our office is at 151 Beach Road, Vineyard Haven MA.
Each year, we provide Island youth with over $130,000 in scholarships to get out on the water and under sail. We’re now reaching more Islanders than ever before through partnerships with the Boys & Girls Club and through SailMobility, with Camp Jabberwocky and Island Autism. SailMobility needs $130,000 to run each summer, and we need your support to offer this program to its full capacity.
