Student Sailing Scholarships

Student scholarships go directly towards student tuition or participation fees. The scholarships are directly applied to a particular student’s participation or tuition for a particular event and are the same price as the parents pay for students who do not need a scholarship.

Scholarships are requested on a ‘need’ basis but are awarded on merit. A parent or student applies for scholarship when they need it, and the coaches and program director award to the sailor(s) based on merit and character if fewer scholarships are provided than requested. Sailing is a costly sport for parents Travel and gear are expensive. Providing a scholarship enables students to sail who otherwise could not.

Regatta Sponsorships

Hatteras Community Sailing hosts two annual regattas, one in the spring and one in the fall. These sailing festival events attract sailors from the Mid-Atlantic and Chesapeake regions.
