The video above shows footage from the 2014 summer youth sailing program at the Key West Community Sailing Center.

The Key West Community Sailing Center and The Blue Paper are coordinating a special 7-week after-school “Learn to Sail” program, beginning March 3rd, for 11 students from low-income families who live at the Key West Housing Authority’s “Porter Place” on Palm Avenue.

The kids, ages 8-13, are signed up and ready to go.

Update: Thanks to the two Blue Paper readers that have already pledged to sponsor one child each!!

The Blue Paper is looking for help from readers to sponsor full scholarships for all 11 students.   The break even cost per student is $135.00.

[The Blue Paper publishers have sponsored all 11 students, payment has been made in full to the Key West Sailing Center.  We are looking for readers who wish to help us by sharing in the costs of this program.]
