Who Should Apply

This Boat Grant Program has been put together to encourage young adult sailors to sail and compete on a J/24.  The applicant would need to be 21 years old and your crew of 4-5 needs to be at least 18 years old.

  • You and your team could be sailors on a College sailing team looking to augment your dinghy sailing skills into a larger boat or to test your ability against larger fleets.
  • You and your team could be recent College graduates with lots of desire to get into a competitive one-design Class, but you lack the funds to purchase a boat.
  • You and your team could be young adults who sailed in high school, a junior program, or recreationally, and who want to develop skills in sailboat racing.
  • You and your team could be a female team who wants to compete at a World Class Level.

The J/24 Class has many opportunities to make these dreams a reality.
