STAFF & VOLUNTEERS
 

We are Sailors

We believe in the road less traveled, even if it isn’t a road at all.

We believe getting there isn’t half the fun; it’s all the fun.
We believe we could get where we’re going faster, but we wouldn’t be better when we got there.
We believe anything worth doing well isn’t for everyone.
We believe being different makes all the difference.
Pushing the limit is the norm, not the exception. 
And speaking another language brings us together – and yet sets us apart.
We believe that confidence is the true measure of wealth.
We believe the sea is fickle soul who will earn your respect.
We believe the stars in the night sky are there for a reason.
We believe what you see on the water will change the way you see life on land.
We believe people who don’t sail are missing something. 
We believe we can change that.
We are sailors.  Join us.
