ABOUT PONTIAC SAILING EDUCATION FOUNDATION
To foster educational programs for training in seamanship, navigation, and related skills; and all other activities related for the purpose of sailing.
Pontiac Sailing Education Foundation was founded in 1984 to make learning to sail more accessible to the children of the Metropolitan Detroit area. PSEF created a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Our goal is to introduce children to the lifelong sport as the future of the sport is dependent on cultivating the interest and developing skills of all levels in our children.
PSEF is a separate entity from Pontiac Yacht Club . However, PSEF wishes to thank PYC for their support and use of their facilities for the sailing programs. During Fall and Spring, high school interscholastic racing teams sail at PYC. In the summer, PYC is the site for Junior Sailing and the very competitive Race Team.
Based on need, PSEF offers a limited number of scholarships for summer tuition.
The PSEF Board is currently targeting opportunities to enhance the program, safety, competition, and education of junior sailors.
