The March 23 event was cancelled.*

COVID-19 tried to take the wind out of our sails, but we did not abandon ship! Our wonderfully dedicated planning committee responded nimbly, taking a different tack, and setting a course for a successful virtual fundraiser. Thank you for making our online auction boat loads of fun and a huge success!

Youth Sailing Foundation of Indian River County, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that offers free sailing instruction to all the children of Indian River County. We believe that by teaching kids the skills necessary to pilot a sailboat, they become better equipped to meet challenges both on and off the water, learning integral concepts that will guide them through life. Volunteers build, maintain and operate a fleet of over 80 boats and facilities at the Vero Beach Waste Water Treatment Plant.

Rock The Boat is our annual fund raiser. Through the generosity of individuals and businesses Rock The Boat represents the largest single source of funds in support of our programs. Thanks to the great success of last year’s event and your generous support throughout the year, enrollment in our children’s programs is at an all time high! We are currently serving over 150 local youth in our growing instructional programs. We depend on your continued generosity to fund our expanding mission.
