Blue Water Foundation

Mission Statement
The Blue Water Foundation was founded as an all-volunteer, nonprofit corporation dedicated to bringing the joys of sailing to San Francisco Bay Area inner city and at risk youth.

A Brief History
In 1992 a group of sailors wanted to introduce San Francisco Bay Area young people to the joys of sailing.  Using volunteers’ boats, these sailors began to take small groups of middle school students sailing on San Francisco Bay. The response from students was so enthusiastic that soon, our informal excursions became regularly scheduled trips.  Now, through our programs over 10,000 young people have discovered the art of sailing, experienced success through teamwork and have had fun while exploring a maritime alternative to drugs, alcohol and gangs.
