Keeping Watch  

What exactly do we do at Edgewood Sailing School? Well, we teach sailing, of course, and a lot of that involves active instruction on and off the water. But a big part of what we do is also keeping watch over our students, to make sure they have having a safe, fun, and fulfilling experience while learning to sail.  KEEPING WATCH requires developing and retaining a top-notch set of instructors, and doing that requires a fair amount of money – instructor wages are by far the number one cost we have in the ESS budget each year. 

Where does that money come from? Mostly from tuitions paid by our student families, but those tuitions don’t cover all of the funds we need each year. And rising costs make it difficult for some families to pay the full tuition cost we require to keep our instructors on the water doing what they do best. That’s where our MACNEIL-WESTCOTT SCHOLARSHIP FUND comes in, allowing donors to help subsidize youth tuitions and, in turn, to help fund the instructors who are the mission-critical component to all that we hope to achieve at ESS.
