The Sheridan Shore Sailing School Scholarship Fund
Sheridan Shore Sailing School Scholarship Fund is pleased to offer over $5,000 each year. We want to thank the many organizations that assist with our scholarships: Beacon Academy, Evanston Sailing Club, Loyola Academy Sailing Club, & The Friederici Fund.
Scholarships are available for use towards tuition, gear, and equipment.
Our mission is to get as many children on the water as possible, so that they may have the opportunity to enjoy the lifelong sport of sailing.
The drive behind the Friederici Scholarship Fund.
Lake Michigan was an important place for Hartmann and Erica. Erica grew up in Chicago and always loved the lake. Hartmann grew up in South America, where he learned to sail as a boy, and moved to Chicago as a young man. After they married, the two of them often sailed on weekends, using harbors at Great Lakes, Waukegan, and finally Wilmette for many years. For them, sailing was a refuge from busy lives on shore, a way to celebrate friendships with the numerous friends they invited onboard, and a chance to get close to nature. The Friederici Scholarship Fund honors their memory by allowing members of a new generation to learn to sail on the waters of Lake Michigan. Their family is excited to continue the legacy at the Sheridan Shore Sailing School.
