RS Sailing are delighted to enter a partnership with US Sailing to launch the Siebel Sailors initiative which will supply approximately 120 RS Feva sailboats to 20 programs in the US over the next two years along with other necessary resources to sustain such a program.
This program aligns with RS Sailing’s core mission to drive participation and get more people involved in our awesome sport. This often requires removing barriers to make it easier for more people to go sailing.
The landmark community sailing program has been made possible by a ground-breaking donation from the Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation, led by successful tech industry businessman, sailor, and philanthropist, Tom Siebel.
The Siebel Sailors Program will support an important US Sailing objective of providing increased access to sailing for youth, regardless of socio-economic background. US Sailing, through the Siebel Sailors Program, will provide fleets of sail boats, equipment, and expert coaching at community sailing centers initially in five regions across the country. The Program will significantly enhance community sailing center programming, advanced skill development, and competitive opportunities for young sailors.
