Special programs

The Grosse Ponte Youth Nautical Education Foundation (GPYNEF) has been involved in numerous special projects to provide education and support to individual sailors on track to compete on a national level. We continue to provide funding and funding opportunities for young sailors to qualify for international and national programs which then lead to the enhancement of our top-level local programs. 

The GPYNEF also participates with other educational and safety boating programs to ensure that the young folks today have the instruction and skills needed to be safe on the water. In 2020, the Foundation located sailing books for learn to sail programs offering them as a valuable resource for the beginning sailors. The book below is an example of the educational tools.
