SailMaine, a non-profit organization that supports sailing in Maine at the grassroots, community level, has raised over $45,000 through its 420 Capital Campaign.

In early September, SailMaine received a fleet of twenty 420’s, which has allowed SailMaine to continue to grow programs for beginners, youth sailors and competitive high school racing teams.

Southern Maine’s only community sailing organization, SailMaine offers programs that provide Casco Bay-area schools with spring and fall High School Racing Programs that serve 150 high school students each year. The racing program has been growing over several years, and the current fleet needed updating. Several hundred more childre and adults will also use the new fleet of 420’s in SailMaine’s summer programs. Last year, SailMaine provided the Casco Bay area community over 34,000 hours on the water.
