BtB in Action
Sailing brings us together and teaches us an appreciation for the waters where we play. Beyond the Boat (BtB) is how we exhibit service to others and stewardship for our environment.
Pontiac Sailing Education Foundation Partnership
Making learning to sail more accessible for youth
PSEF is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded by the Pontiac Yacht Club whose purpose is to foster educational programs for training in seamanship, navigation, and related sailing skills. Through PSEF's support, MUDJ Sailing is committed to making sure that financial need is not a limiting factor to a student's participation. Our pledge is to provide sailing school tuition assistance to any family showing financial need.
Leukemia Cup Hosted by Brother Rice & Marian High School
Raising more than a sail
Each spring, skippers register their boats and recruit friends and colleagues to help raise funds and awareness for lifesaving cancer research and patient services that brings help and hope to patients and their families. MUDJ sailing is proud to support the efforts of the Brother Rice and Marian High School team in bringing this national effort to local high school sailing.
