Youth Regatta Participation Grant Fund
The NCESA wants to encourage those members under 30 who are in need of some financial help to attend major regattas. We have established a committee to review grant applications to ensure the young candidates we support are in need of assistance and will meet the goals we have outlined for this grant.
**Increase the number of skippers under the age of
30 to attend these six regattas:
NCESA National E Championship regatta,
Eastern E-Scow Championship regatta,
WMYA Championship regatta,
Western Michigan E-Invite regatta,
ILYA E-Scow Championship regatta,
ILYA E-Invite regatta.
**Turn our young skippers into lifelong E-Scow sailors.
**Provide an opportunity for young skippers to gain the experience and knowledge to improve their racing results.
**Continue to grow the E-Fleet locally and nationally with young members to
2019 National Championship at Muskegon MI
Provide funds to support a world class event that includes the best possible race management team, interviews and Q&A sessions for immediate race feedback and a great learning experience, socials to build and encourage camaraderie where news and new ideas can be shared.
