Sailing has a long tradition of providing character building life experiences to young people in a fun and safe outdoor environment.
The Youth Sailing Foundation of the Palm Beaches was created to build a sustainable sailing infrastructure to work with existing sailing and youth programs in our community.
The Foundation is led and administered by a group of volunteers. We have seen the positive impact on children who have participated in sailing programs. We believe that better coordination between Corporate and Individual Supporters of youth sailing and established youth programs can have a significant impact on our young sailors and communities.

Lagoon Clean-Up June 25, 2016
YSFPB partnered with the Palm Beach Sailing Club and Lagoon Keepers to clean up our Lake Worth Lagoon. 25 volunteers focused on 2 areas of the intracoastal waterway; the South Cove Islands off Flagler Drive in downtown WPB, and the shoreline south of the Port of Palm Beach. 319.9 pounds of trash was collected and removed from the waterway. "It was an eye opening experience". Many thanks to PBSC, Lagoon Keepers and our volunteers.
Thanks also to Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful for providing clean-up supplies and advice. Another clean-up is planned as part of International Coastal Clean up day on September 17, 2016.
