Hatteras Sailing Organization Sponsorships

Support Hatteras sailing through sponsorship

Hatteras Community Sailing is set up as a nonprofit organization under the US Sailing Community Sailing program. Hatteras Sailing Organization (Hatteras Sailing) is a member-based organization, open to all, created to encourage sailing and competitive opportunities for our Island Youth. Hatteras Sailing is a nonprofit community organization focused on inclusion of youth and adults who have a desire to learn more about our Island’s wonderful natural assets!

Please spread the word to local and regional business owners who share our passion for seeing our youth on the water! Some businesses out there are actually looking for worthwhile programs like Hatteras Sailing Organization to donate an annual community support budget. Now is a great time to reach out to any local or global business interested in youth health education that sponsors active and educational programs like ours.

Hatteras Sailing is a US Sailing Community Sailing program and falls under the protections and assurances of US Sailing.

    Boat in Clearwater Florida Jay and Meg Phillips have purchased another 420 the club can user, but it needs to be picked up in Clearwater Florida. We need 2 people to run there with a trailer and bring this boat back up to Hatteras so the bigger kids have enough boats in the 420 class.

Rigid Inflatables are the boat of choice because the inflatable rubber […]
