CSC’s Adaptive Sailing Program breaks down barriers for participants living with physical and cognitive disabilities. Utilizing specialized equipment and unique programming, CSC teaches sailing to members of our community regardless of ability.
CSC offers programs during the months of April to October in both Boulder and Denver.
Mission: “Make sailing in Colorado accessible to all. Teach skills, build confidence & have fun!”
Vision: “Our Community, enriched by the sailing experience.”
Outreach: Provide a summer camp sailing experience to all youth regardless of financial abilities. Sliding-scale and full scholarships are available to make these programs affordable for those who could not otherwise afford it. We offer free sail nights during the summer months as well as host series of free adaptive sailing events to the community.
Community Sailing provides youth with a safe place to learn basic and advanced sailing techniques, and upon learning the basics of sailing provide the use of sailboats to practice sailing and further that knowledge. Instruction is both practical and theoretical; including on-water drills and instruction and theoretical on-shore discussion. Sailing topics include boat handling, right of way, safety, navigation and docking.
Personal skills developed in a sailing environment include self-confidence, safety awareness, good communication, planning, thoughtful decision making, self-sufficiency, teamwork, and other skills that will carry on into a youth’s life.
Sailing classes are conducted by professional US Sailing certified sailing instructors; and are assisted by volunteer instructors. All testing is conducted by US Sailing and Community Sailing certified instructors.
