We're planning to reach-out more

Much more. And soon.

Many Queen's Sailing members joined Alumni and former team members to work on our database of alumni and contacts, and to plan for fundraising to purchase new sails.

Today a dozen current QST members joined boosters at the Kingston Yacht Club to prepare for some serious fundraising.

We’ll have more definite details soon, but if stars align our fleet of 420s will double to twenty boats.

This means we’re looking to soon become a larger, more dynamic racing team, and correspondingly increase the capacity of our recreational sailing programs.

It also means we need new sails: twenty sets to replace our tattered ten-set inventory, and outfit the ten second-hand Vanguard 420s we are close to purchasing from the US Naval Academy.

It’s a tall-order and an ambitious challenge. And we need to do this right.
