Thanks to your support, we have reached our campaign goal of $25,000!

On Sept. 30, we launched a matching gift challenge to Raise Our Sails. All donations up to $15,000, will be matched by our generous donor Dr. John Bowers & Family, and will be used for the purchase of new specialty-colored sails for our fleet of Harbor 20 sailboats. Our campaign goal was to reach $25,000!

With your generous support over the past few months, we’ve met our match goal and raised over $25,000 for the purchase of new specialty-colored sails for our fleet of Harbor 20 sailboats and much-needed programming supplies for our Sail Nauticus Academy operations.

We’re so grateful to all supporters of this campaign and look forward to debuting our new sails this spring/summer.
