A Safe, Enriching, and Affordable Sailing Program for Asperger's and High Functioning Individuals Within the Autism Spectrum Disorder
Sailing Camps for Autistic Teenagers
We are a group of parents, Pinellas County teachers, and youth volunteers working to help youth on the autistic spectrum from the ages 8 to adults sail independently or with a bit of assistance.
We provide our children and their families with a support group and a place for our sailors to learn and practice their social skills in a safe environment. Please get in touch with us to join our sailing classes.
Our Mission Statement
