Support Hatteras sailing through sponsorship
Hatteras Community Sailing is setting up as a nonprofit organization. We anticipate the IRS Approval to come through in a few weeks, if not less, for the 501(3)c status. This makes all Sponsorship Funding fall under the charitable tax deduction. While not tantamount, it is nice if supporting individuals and businesses can deduct their support on their tax returns.
Kids need boats
Currently, the club is borrowing boats from Colington Yacht Club.
We need our own set of boats for the kids to learn properly and in the warmer months. We also need facilities Maintenance and Lease, and other administrative needs. Currently all instruction and administration is volunteer.
Most Pressing Needs
Our biggest need for the start of the program is for Optimists One Designs and 420 Team Boats. The organization would thrive with its seasonal programs with a fleet of 10 optimists and 10 420’s. The Olympic class boats will be in the cross hairs in a few seasons once the kids have mastered these less expensive training boats first.
Boat Types and costs
- New Optimist – $3500
- Used Optimist – $2000 (based on availability)
- New 420 – $9700
