We know sailing has the potential to change a life, and it is possible thanks to supporters like YOU! Together we are providing our community with access to sailing and our city’s precious resource, San Francisco Bay. We’re building the character of the next generation while teaching good habits and safe boating. We’re giving the community access to the water through free or low cost courses and rentals. Everyone who sails on our little gem in the Bay, Clipper Cove, leaves with a renewed self-confidence and a big smile.
Since its inception in 1999, over 33,000 people have sailed with TISC and in this year alone we hit many milestones. The Set Sail Learn program served its 6700 the student while total youth served in 2018 was over 2200 with 24,000 hours of instruction.
In 2018, TISC awarded over $160,000 in scholarships to youth and families. With an overall youth scholarship rate of 84%, TISC continues providing affordable and more often free sailing opportunities while building character and promoting a connection to San Francisco Bay.
