    Description

    2020

    Our foundation is a non-profit organization created 14 years ago to facilitate getting the children of the island of Hawaii sailing. We are looking for assistance with the day sailing activities we have during school breaks in the winter, spring and summer. Our last Winter sailing camp was December 26 -31, 2019. We will have a scholarship fundraiser/sail day and movie night (Maiden) on March 14th 2020. Our Spring camp will be March 16-20th . We will have 2 weeks of Keiki (ages 8-12 yrs) in June and 2 weeks of Teen sailing in July. We will be setting up our 2020 summer calendar in early April. We are looking for experienced sailors to assist with this years Spring camp and July Teen camps.
    Workaways would be staying in the home of directors, located in Kailua Kona, Hi. Workaways (WA) would be sailing with children age 12-18 in the Winter or Spring camps and children 8-12 in Summer camps. The day camps are 6 hrs per day with 3-4 hour intro & maintenance day before camp starts. Winter & Spring WA would be able to stay a total of 14 days in exchange for their assistance with camp & home. Summer WA could be as long as 3 months. ABILITY to SAIL a dinghy required, if WA is a certified instructor additional compensation would be considered. WA could stay additional week in exchange for help around the home.
