Help our Sailing Teams .....

Sheridan Shore Sailing School is a non-profit organization that introduces the sport of sailing to people young and old from all over the Chicagoland area. In the fall and spring, we host the Beacon Academy, Evanston Township High School, and Loyola Academy sailing teams. In the summer, we run camps for kids ages 6-18 where we teach sailing in a safe and fun environment. 

In 2014, Sheridan Shore Sailing School became accredited as one of 26 US Sailing Community Sailing Centers. This honor recognizes that SSSS exceeds all the required standards set forth by U.S. Sailing and maintains an impressive commitment to high quality public access to sailing through our educational resources and outstanding staff.

For the last 8 years Sheridan Shore Sailing School has had the largest number of sailors in the area at one program. Operation at this capacity really strains all of our gear and equipment. It is an impossible task to keep up with it all.  I believe that we have the leadership, the coaching, and focus to stay top.

My staff and I spend way too much time repairing some of the older SSSS Equipment.  The less time we have to repair broke parts, the more time we can focus on practice and developing our talented Sailors.  

Sheridan Shore Sailing School just went out and purchase 10 Brand New Zim 420 that your sailors will get take advantage of.  We have a multitude of people around the sailing school for nine months out of the year. Having so many sailors requires new sails every few years and a lot of Safety Boats for appropriate safety and coaching. Unfortunately, our twenty five sets of 420 Sails and some of our Safety Boats are on their last legs.

The sailing school uses the facilities of the Wilmette Harbor Club, located on the North Shore of Chicago at Wilmette Harbor in Gillson Park.

As the director of the sailing school, I can ensure that every dollar we receive will go straight to funding for our New Safety Boats and 420 Sails.

We would love to reach our goal of $60,000 to have our new safety boats in time for our sailing season which starts in late March 2018.

Please help our Sailing Teams reach our goal. 

Sincerely,

Zachary A. Hernandez
Executive Director of Sailing
